The grounds are well-kept and peaceful. The small museum is made up of faded photos and explanations of Nkrumah's life, along with some dusty items of his, but do ask the caretakers for any more information, as they turned out to be very helpful and knowledgable.

A small number of essential documents and clothing are on display, but give a good understanding of how powerful Nkrumah's contribution was to his country.

The grounds and the memorial is very peaceful. The museum is interesting if not exhaustive--I learned some new things about Nkrumah and his life trajectory.

An excellent introduction to Kwame Nkrumah and his importance to both Ghana and West Africa. Well worth a visit.

Very small but highly informative museum. Really could use a makeover but still learned a lot. Cost was very small, worth a quick stop for sure

The mausoleum and accompanying museum were interesting and historically significant landmarks to visit. The museum was not well-maintained, however.

Great place to visit if you are looking for a good selfie to remind you of Ghana but they need to be more customer or client-focused. Their facilities also need regular cleaning

Its within the park itself, the same entry ticket to the park will work. Camera is not allowed. It has 100's of photos of the first president. His desk is still there. If you are looking for history - a must place to visit.

This is a good place to go and experience Ghana's history- especially about its past leaders. I would suggest you get a good guide to talk you through the history. There is a Market opposite this place with good handmade crafts if you are a souvenir collecting person- a fine place to pick something!!

If you're up for fountains sans water and a museum sans interpretation, this place is for you. Honestly, a day's work by an earnest history or politics student would bring this up to par, along with some air conditioning inside. The park is pretty enough, with nice shade trees. Most interesting, I thought, was a statue that had been toppled... More
