I was blown away by the magnitude of the park; a life size statue of Nkrumah, the 1st Prime Minister; an added attraction is the horn blower life like statues in the shallow pool welcoming visitors. Our guide was on point. gave an informative narration and I ended up at the store for some souvenirs

The Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and Museum is a beautiful tribute to a great man. This site is the final resting place of Ghana's 1st President.The museum houses some of Nkrumahs's personal items and chronicles Ghana's move from colonial rule to independence. Being Ghanaian, by birth, yet residing in a different country, this was a wonderful way to recapture an... More

I was disappointed after finally making it to this mausoleum. I bet it's seen no major renovation since it was opened. Entrance on the side not really clear to the visitor. Even the entry receipts are dated....still in old Ghana cedis. The courtyard looks poorly maintained. The musuem itself looks well kept. The pools around are crying for cleaning. There... More

A national hero, left abandoned. Sorry to say, but a poorly maintained memorial to a great man. A couple of nice statues outside, including the headless statue vandalised in a riot, with the later recovered head alongside on a separate plinth. Would be extremely poignant if it did not fit in perfectly with the general state of maintenance. Don't go... More

I went to the site and payed a ticket. I toured the place and was escorted. The escort gave me a brief history of the the memorial park and the works of Kwame Nkrumah. I was amazed and wished Kwame Nkrumah lived to witness his dreams.

This park is a must see! Dr. Nkrumah was the founding father of independence of Ghana. He is buried here with his wife. The historical centre was particularly interesting as it is a collection of many photos of Dr. Nkrumah with other world leaders. Loved this very much, thank you.

I have been to this park 3 times with friends. If you're really interested in knowing more about the first president of Ghana, you should be here to learn some great Ghaian history. It cosist of the Museum and the Mausoleum.

Visitors get up close and personal with artifacts from Pres. Kwame Nkrumah. In addition to his burial grounds, there are a ton of other cool pieces from his life in service.

A highlight of the trip to see and learn more about the great Dr Nkruma, a special place for the leader and where he performed his inaugural speech when made president of Ghana. Really informative and lovely gifts at the end to commemorate the day. Would suggest putting lights in the park to light it up at night when not... More

This is not the kind of place you come to be wowed but I feel like it is a very important part of a visit to Ghana and unearthing it's history. We stopped here atfer a shopping trip and it was well worth the visit.
