We got a guided tour in the small sculpture garden. It was informative and gave us some insight into the traditions and history of Ghana but I would say the sculpture garden is a must-see.

It is CLOSED!!!! Checked the website.....states that it is open. This is incorrect. Arrived ( with other tourist) to be told it has been closed for 2 years for renovations. So disappointed!!! Please do not waste your time..

Quite a journey to get there and once arriving, find the exhibition is closed but you can look around at the statues. Takes 5 minutes max.

The National museum of Ghana is an important tourist attraction. We recommend it especially for those embarking on educational tour. But it is quite unfortunate that the museum is currently closed indefinitely due to an ongoing renovation.
