Understanding the significance of the Asantehene, figures like Yaa Asantewaa (the war queen) and the current king sitting on the stool will be told here! Only problem, no pictures inside...there is a small museum gift store on the premises.

The tour was very informative, the culture is vibrant and beautiful. I enjoyed learning the history of the Ashanti royal family. Each time I visit, I gain more knowledge. Yaa Asantewa is my hero. I admire her bravery. Wonderful video and awesome gift shop.

Learned a lot - our guide was excellent. The place smells a bit like cat pee though. We loved learning about the history of Ghana and the Ashanti people.

A place to learn the history of the akans (Asanteman) Very old building and it seems nothing has changed since the prehistoric era about 80years ago

The great history of the Ashantis can never be erased from that of West Africa, Gold Coast and Ghana. Statues of the Kings and Queens look real. So much evidence of the battle victories and challenges of the Ashanti's. Don't miss the location.

I think the hours are like 9-5 but when we went, they were opening later than advertised because they said that people weren't usually coming that early. So, we had to wait for someone to come to give us a tour.
