Interesting monumental structure

Important for political and historic reasons. Intriguing sculptures of musicians whose horns spout water in the wetter parts of the year. Peaceful park.

The guide was really good, even as a veteran reader i learnt things i hadn't known before. And the monument and statues were very fitting.

The park had a serene environment and also had nice artifacts. The mausoleum is within the park. I learnt alot about Ghana's journey from colonialism and also about the great contributions that Dr. Kwame made. The only downside to the park is that pictures are not allowed and that foreigners are charged more than Ghanaian citizens which I found rather... More

While on a visit to Accra, I was surprised to find this park in town honoring Ghana's freedom from colonialism and the nation's first president. My experience there was of a very peaceful-feeling place. Well worth your time if you're in Accra.

We enjoyed our visit here - although the gardens did look a little unkempt & the museum was rather short of material albeit what was there, was interesting -Sadly I guess as tourism isn't a main focus & the country in need of many other capital expenditure this sort of thing is well down on the list - a shame...

The mausoleum has been kept very clean and managed well despite the few personal effects of the first president has been displayed. It is a very quiet place to sit and reflect about the work and life of the first President. Recently I have observed that many married couple go there to take pictures in their wedding attire which I... More

Start off by going to the back of the park into the museum - a guide will give you a brief history and explanation of the space, which will really give context to the whole visit. Beware of the hawkers outside though - our experience found the ones right outside the park doors to be particularly aggressive.

It's a good place to spend one hour or two, to walk, to relax and to visit the Nkrumah-mausoleum, and to learn about an important part of ghanian history.
