Very intersting tour. Well kept up, with a very broad range of information about the history of the armed forces not only in Ghana, but also the biggest part of West Africa.

The building is as old as when the nation got its independence and still very strong. Had chills all over when I entered the caves that were used as cells for people. It will surely bring tears to your eyes but that's the history

Best military museum in Kumasi housing the history of the Ghana Arm Forces. Tour guides are excellent. City centre, Adum location makes it easy to access.

The military Museum as usually called will show you a lot about Ghana's military history. It was also the site of the 1900 war between the English and Ashanti

Great museum that shows how the Britisch coloniser act like animals towards the local people. The local soldiers got permission to wear shoes in 1937 ... before they where barefoot ... Big suprise the locals fought against the Japanees in WW II.
