Smallish but well kept park, which houses both the mausoleum and a small museum. Interesting and a bit of calm away from hectic Accra traffic. Fountain statues are very good. Usual hawkers at the gates but don't feel compelled to buy anything.

The mausoleum makes a great photo and is an impressive last resting place of the late first president.. His wife is also buried nearby. I have reviewed the park setting and museum under separate cover despite being a single attraction. There is a lot of history associated with the sight. The choice of this tomb is not accidental.

This is a well laid out tribute. The museum though small, has a lot of information. It could use a bit more restoration as the pictures are starting to fade. Worth paying a quick visit.. Shouldn't take more than 30 min.

We visited the museum in a public holiday and it was 10 cedis to enter. Unfortunately there was no tour guide so it lacked that whole chronological story telling feel. The museum has a lot of information which was the best part of it all. I would recommend visiting - however it would be nice to be on a tour... More

Miss Taxi Ghana (Tour Guide) took my friend and I here and it was great. There were peacocks roaming free. It's a great place to sit, relax and have a mini photoshoot. I got to see a tree that Nelson Mandela planted and Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's personal effects.

Lovely place to visit... Lovely experience for me... My friend and I didn't need a tour guide because I was enough... thank you daddy for making me read every Kwame Nkrumah book you have. The museum experience was my best... I practically was in the great Kwame Nkrumah's presence as I took in the beauty of his personal effects.

The history of the country and of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is truly important. This memorial honours his memory very well. There are the grounds with beautiful trees, some of which are planted by foreign dignitaries. The statue of Dr. Nkrumah is excellent. Be sure to take time to visit the museum located there. 10 cedes to get in. You can... More

I Loved the layout of the memorial grounds. going into the area of his grave felt very surreal and I thought the pictorial history of his political life was awesome I learned so much in that museum in a short space of time spent 2hrs there.To me it was and is well worth a visit if in Accra.
