  • Excellent collection of African art in a setting that allowed easy access tor the pieces. The guide was able to share information in English and the indoor/outdoor setting made for a relaxed milieu...  more »
  • A wealth of material, but mostly 2nd and 3rd rate- organized by a Chinese collector who seems to leave at the rear next to his hotel- a bit odd.  more »
  • No labels, Objects are crowded. Hopefully you will be with a good guide who can explain what you are seeing.  more »
  • Their collection are very good,but the demonstration is poor..Contact number mentioned in the image attached.
  • I've been in this museum for so long, and I really like this. And I found this guy running around.
  • The place has lots of African historical items and tour guide had a good amount of knowledge regarding them. You're not allowed to take pictures inside the main rooms but you could take pictures outside with a few items. A ticket was sold at 3000cfa for tourists Inside the rooms were hot and the AC wasn't functional and the swimming pool is not open to tourists. I believe with good maintenance the place could be better. Above all, I enjoyed being there
  • Nice place to know about the caltuers of Ghana
  • It's a nice place, although I didn't get go into the main building to see the artworks, but I did admire the ones placed outside.
