  • Everything you need to know about Kwame Nkrumah & Ghana is here. Its a must see attraction in Ghana, especially if its your first time. You wont be dissapointed  more »
  • Good thing you can do with friends and family there is different pricing for none Ghanaians but entry fee includes entry to the museum and someone gives a tour of the exhibition. The memorial has a beautiful setup it makes for good location chilling and taking in history I believe at night it lights up beautifully
  • A place where Ghana's life begins. The good memories of the first President of Ghana are kept here and I see it to be where the real history of Ghana begins here. If his legacy can be taken and worked upon by every other African President, Africa will rise again and shall impact the world.
