Understanding the significance of the Asantehene, figures like Yaa Asantewaa (the war queen) and the current king sitting on the stool will be told here! Only problem, no pictures inside...there is a small museum gift store on the premises.
One of my favourite tours till date.

The tour is very affordable with price range from 3ghc to 10gh.
You aren’t allowed to take pictures in the museum.

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.
