Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park contains a magnificent marble mausoleum and the last resting place of the country's first prime minister and president. A tall bronze statue of this famous pan-African leader sits on very spot from which Nkrumah declared independence from Britain in 1957. Built in 1992, the mausoleum features a catafalque and a paved park area with fountains and sculptures. An underground museum beneath the complex features an impressive collection of photographs of world leaders with whom Nkrumah worked, detailing events from Ghana's tumultuous history.

  • This is a stunning park with some very inventive statues. It offers some very needed tranquility in a busy city. The museum is poorly kept powerful and is dusty with no one showing you around or helping to explain things on view.
  • Great place to learn about Ghana's presidential history and what politics back them. Really interesting museum about Kwame Nkrumah, showcasing cloths he wore and famous people he had met. Good for a day out if you ever find yourself in Ghana
  • I loved this place. I felt such peace. A must stop if you are in Accra
  • What a fantastic museum.Its such a refreshing and sad place to watch where Ghana came from and where they are today.The park is really well set up
  • Peaceful park with a museum. G10 to get in. Good to get away from the traffic and bustling market.
