  • I was very disappointed in the museum with the presentation of the photos and artifacts. They were no presented very well of the very first President of Ghana. Hopefully someone will step up and make it a first-class museum. It was not very professionally put together.
  • Very nice place to be, they have a lot of tourist stuff there.
  • Not enough artefacts. Museum can be much better run and improved in term of presentation. Items on display do show a rich history, nonetheless.
  • Interesting place to visit any free time
  • Well crafted edifice with large auditoriums for national or very big events. Accessibility concerns and car parking space well catered for.
