This is worth a visit to appreciate the Independence of Ghana in 1958 and involvement of Nkrumah in this.

This is the monument erected over the tomb of the first president, Dr Kwame Nkramuh. The monument itself is quite impressive and the grounds are reasonable however the water feature that should surround it no longer functions. The museum is quite interesting and informative, and contains some fascinating photos of the president taken during his life and his time as... More

I being a big fan of Dr.Kwame Nkrumah, I decided to visit the park , the grounds are nicely kept... More

Memorial park and museum with space to walk and reflect on the life of Ghana's first leader following independence in 1957. Unfortunately, when we visited the water had been drained from the fountain. The museum is small, which is not bad, but the pieces are not maintained well as one would expect.

This important historical figure is grandly interned here. The most interesting parts are to see all the photos of Nkrumah with 1960's world leaders. This reminds one how special Ghana was in the Pan African world. And don't miss his well preserved Blue Cadillac.

I learned so much about Pres. Nkrumah, Ghana and African nationalism in general. It was wonderful hearing and reading about just how much Nkrumah was able to accomplish is Ghana during his tenure as president. We visited here early during our stay in Ghana so it definitely informed the rest of our travels there. I ❤️Ghana!

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

A very historic site when it comes to the independent and liberation of Ghana. If you want to know more about pan Africanism from its genesis on the conitnent of Africa, you cannot miss this site.

From a distance, the monument beckons with great promise, seemingly trumpeting a site not to be missed. I used the services of an on site tour guide although my spouse went around on her own as everything in the museum and grounds is well marked. The gloomy museum is a bit threadbare suggesting funding issues. The fountains have also been... More

Very interesting and definitely worth a visit. Nice but small museum with some nice attributes and many interesting photos. For ghanese standaards a lot of Information is provided. Outside of the park are some annoying street vendors. Dont get trapped by them.
