“Americans - this is a MUST SEE”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

I am so happy that we visited this museum and mausoleum. I had no idea the connection and influence this man had on Dr. Martin Luther King. I had a mental shift to a more global perspective. I think as Americans we tend to think within our borders only. The world is interdependent, and no where did I get a stronger sense of that than in the museum. This was an extremely influential man. The Ghanian people are very proud of his role in their cause for independence. Nkrumah's legacy is one of non-violence and peace. Ghana achieved independence through non-violence and brains. The photos in the museum are alone are worth seeing. The guide was extremely passionate and knowledgable. The mausoleum's architecture is very interesting as well. Definitely a MUST SEE.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I am pleased my daughter wanted to visit this site. The park is lovely, the architecture of the building impressive. It was peaceful. A worthy tribute to an important man. The museum is simple, but offers an impression of Nkrumah's life. There is a 6 cedi entrance fee.

Was very impressed with the sight, and did find it great to see that most of the trees were planted as gestures from embassies and Ghana VIPs. I thought everything was incredibly clean and that it really was a fitting memorial to a great man. Looking forward to seeing it when the fountains are working and you don't have to see all that dirty water...

“Great location and a must place to see”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

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.
