Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, Accra

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.

  • Reasonably ok. Hardly much to see around. Some few memorabilia of Kwame Nkrumah are kept do not very well displayed or maintained. Ç10/- entrance fee is a bit stiff.  more »
  • The Kwame Nkrumah Park has a museum which highlights the life journey of Ghana's hero. In the museum you will fine items used by the leader as far back as when he was a little boy - a stool his grandm...  more »
  • Quite interesting place to visit. A lot of information about Dr. Kwame Nkruma. There is a museum on the premises with artifacts from his life. It is a bit run down though.  more »

  • This place has really been poorly managed. Not worth the visit anymore in my opinion. It's a fun place, was a fun place. You could get a lot of interesting facts about Dr Kwame Nkrumah but the park itself is not being run well in my opinion. Was way better 15 years ago.
  • The Kwame Nkrumah National Park has the mausoleum of the great African leader and former Ghanaian president, Kwame Nkrumah. Also there lies the remains of his beloved Egyptian wife. It also has a museum basically containing personal effects and pictures of the late great leader on his sojourn across the world. Beautiful garden with a couple of statues of the African leader. There are also numerous trees that have been planted by various great leaders when they visited the park.
  • Well worth a visit while in Accra. Make sure you grab a guide to walk you through the symbolism and explain more details on Nkrumah's background. The only reason for 4 stars is that the small Nkrumah museum left something to be desired.
  • A beautiful place to visit. We had our own tour guide for Acrra so we were able to do a walk thru by ourselves and get a lot of great info. We took a lot of nice pictures as it's a beautiful place that is very clean. If you don't have your own tour guide I would highly recommend doing the full tour so that you can learn more about Kwame's history.
  • A must go if you are in Accra . Great place with a lot of history. You will also find the museum on the back with Kwame Nkrumah History
