The tour was very informative, the culture is vibrant and beautiful. I enjoyed learning the history of the Ashanti royal family. Each time I visit, I gain more knowledge. Yaa Asantewa is my hero. I admire her bravery. Wonderful video and awesome gift shop.

I think the hours are like 9-5 but when we went, they were opening later than advertised because they said that people weren't usually coming that early. So, we had to wait for someone to come to give us a tour.
