A man of great vision for united Africa. The mausoleum is located in the park, just opposite to the supreme court in Accra. Everything you want to know about this African statesman, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. His table, pen, casket, photographs with other great leaders from different countries. There is much to learn about his life. The final resting place of Dr. Kwame & his wife is also there.

This labor of love, respect and posterity stands out as a testimony to the best of Ghana and the best of Africa. The entire facility (museum and mausoleum) are well kept, and the grounds well manicured (can do with a little sprinkling, but watering lawns may be an issue in Africa). The limousine (the Continental he used for official travel) is in poor shape - perhaps because it is stored in a non-climate controlled environment - as was the museum: even though there are air-conditioning units, they were not running the morning we visited (is power conservation also an issue in Ghana/Africa?). There is a building with a lounge that was air-conditioned and comfortable; however, the bookstore (it looks like it was being run by a concessionaire rather than the foundation/museum/facility) felt a little cramped, run down-ish and beneath the level of the rest of the facilities.

The tour guide was patient, professional, clear, knowledgeable and very helpful. You can't visit Ghana and leave without a visit here or without the story of this GREAT Ghanaian, African, Pan-African and visionary.

The Mausoleum is located in the Park. Great location! For some reason the Mausoleum seems to be the coolest place in the Park. There is a strong breeze there. Our Tour Guide give us so much information about Dr. Nkrumah.

Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and Mausoleum were beautiful in their original design and execution of this memorial to honor their first president. A man of great vision for a united Africa; there is much to learn about his life.

By western standards, this may not seem like a remarkable museum, but the life they are honoring is indeed remarkable. The mausoleum in an amazing piece of architecture, making for some great photos!

Like much of Africa, this site shows the challenge of a maintenance-lacking mentality. This could be truly beautiful, but the grounds and exhibits could use some TLC.
