It was immediately peaceful entering the mausoleum's grounds because I left behind the men selling tchotchkes. The statues were not super clean and not all the water guns were working, but I was able to take some really nice photos. The mausoleum has a nice...More

If you are interested in Ghana's independence and African Unity, this is a must see. It's a very simple museum but the guided tour is informative and the park is a peaceful retreat from the craziness of Accra!

I was very impressed by how knowledgeable the tour guide was and how informative the museum was. Dr. Nkrumah was very much ahead of his time and I am glad this Mausoleum is there to pass his ideals along to others!

Come here to enjoy the serene park fronting the beautifully designed, marble mausoleum. Behind the mausoleum that houses Kwame Nekruma’s and his wife’s graves is a small museum dedicated to personal effects and photos of Nekruma’s life and career. There is a large copper alloy...More

I was touched by the tribute to Ghana's first president. A fitting tribute to a person who helped bring independence and fulfilled dreams of many despite the challenges he faced.
