The beheaded statue of Nkrumah behind today's monument is a potent reminder of political instability in the region. The pictures of him with well remembered 20th Century world figures is a blast from the past. If you go, don't miss the museum. It is not too terribly well kept-up, but the exhibits are rather interesting.

Nice park and a bit sobering when you hear of the story of Mr. Nkrumah. The small museum about him was very disorganized but very interesting when the guide walked me around and explained all the pictures on the wall and some details of the man's life. Worth a quick stop while in Accra

I've been here several times. As a scholar of Africology I truly enjoy visiting this historically momentous location. The grounds are beautiful and the museum is quite interesting. I would recommend getting a guide if one is available or going with someone who is very knowledgeable. So much history in this place!

This is a nice place to visit and appreciate the pivotal role Kwame Nkrumah had in Ghanas history. The museum is interesting with a lot of interesting photos, but it could have more information explaining his relationships with the other world leaders seen in the photos. Certainly recommend it, shouldn't take more than half an hour to have a leisurely... More

We visited on a Sunday when not many people were around. It is basically a park (with trees planted by visiting world leaders) with a statue, a tomb and a small museum. The curator is friendly and willing to talk about Nkrumah, but the best bit of the museum was the photo collection showing Nkrumah with many famous world leaders... More

A visit to this park was a great way to spend an afternoon during a day trip. The museum inside wasn't completely open when I arrived, but someone was kind enough to show me inside.

This was my second visit and each time I learn more about my history. It was great to bring my daughter 3yrs old and see her run free.

This is probably the best attraction the Accra has to offer. The monument is dedicated to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana. There is an entry fee, bit for more the foreigner. Fountains and other feathers are not functional. The President's car is still kept there. Few seating arrangement is available. The park is good enough for evening... More

The museum appeared small but touched me with details of the life of a visionary man who sacrificed much for the benefit of his people. Great story. Great history.
