Very interesting and definitely worth a visit. Nice but small museum with some nice attributes and many interesting photos. For ghanese standaards a lot of Information is provided. Outside of the park are some annoying street vendors. Dont get trapped by them.

My travel tour guide (Prince) had a commanding understanding of this man's pivotal devotion, passion and actions in this country's Independence. It is a shame the landscaping grounds aren't cared for better-his Memorial deserves this.
