We are so used to seeing huge slave castles from the coast so this is interesting . With a rich culture, this fort is a musts stop. What is more interesting is how well they try to reserve and maintain it which I really commend them for .

We really enjoyed the tour and all the information we were given by our guide. It was really interesting. Super of the exhibits could do with a little tidy up but there are so many interesting things in there it doesn't really matter, it's superb regardless.

There are lots of relics here from the Ashanti period until the modern day. Lots of details of the Gold Coast solders serving in both world wars. Our guide was a very knowledgeable young man.

If your into military artifacts and history, very good spot to visit. The guide was very knowledgeable, and I learned some things. Lots of not too often seen weaponry. Quick and easy tour

Too much photographs and weapons to be seen in a reasonable time but a very short explanation of the history of the fort and Kumasi city.

It’s a lot of military history but you also learn something about the general history of Ghana. We had a truly brilliant guide a younger woman who spoke English very well. Very interesting were the cells in which the British held Ashantis who fought for their freedom. Tiny dark holes.

Large collection of pictures, guns, flags, and other relics detailing the history of the armed forces in Ghana. Goes from English colonialism in late 1800's to the present. 20 Cedi gets you a guided tour (you cannot tour without a guide) and the guides are very knowledgable. Entire tour is 1-2 hours and is very worth it. Some really cool history in the museum, especially detailing Ghana's involvement during the World Wars.

The museum had nice artefacts and the guide was very knowledgeable. I suddenly had to have a professional skype call and they facilitated that. Interesting tour, one of the best during our month in Ghana.

I was overwhelmed with information.

I wish I had gone there first instead of making it my last stop. I was exhausted and didn’t finish the tour.

Guys this is a must see. Everything about it around arm/war present and past is there to be seen

Entry fee is 5-10gh
Additional charges for filming and picture taking

At the center of town so transportation is readily available

The tour could take up to an hour or more depending on your pace.

I highly recommend it. It connects all the bits and pieces of history of the ashantis and ghana in general

There is a beautiful picture of the shero Yaa Asantewaa

A proud ashanti
