This was the only place in Ghana I was not ripped off. If you must go to Ghana this should be one of your stops.

Park is surrounded by beautiful fountains, trees. There is also one vintage car which was used by Dr. Nkrumah. This is a memorial park in the memory of Dr. Nkrumah.

Come and stroll this park while visiting Nekruma's Mausoleum. It's lovely and shaded and enjoys a nice breeze. There are peacocks strolling about. It's lovely and devoid of crowds.

Cheap gate fees, understated and you're left mostly to yourself. As a museum though, not that many artifcats.

Well, it is a memorial park, so if anyone is interested in history, will enjoy it. Go around, do not miss the museum, take some pictures and feel the history. (anyway, life of the first minister of Ghana is really interesting).

Just a few dollars to enter, the museum is sparse, but gives a good history of the country’s history as the first independent sub-Saharan African country. The president and his wife are buried there. Beautiful grounds with trees planted by visiting President.

It's was 3 cedis for Ghanaian adults. I don't remember the price for Non Ghanaian adults but I think Oyesola might be right.
