Was more of group to friends trip. I love their gifts shop and the pricing is moderate. You get to learn a lot about the Ashanti history and not through a white man’s lens but from the people themselves which gives it a different perspective if you have studied Ashanti history in school. I would say it is a must for all who visit Kumasi to pass through.

It's a brief but very informative tour of the palace which was built by the British after they had burnt his other one down and sent the king into exile. It's a sad story of the brutality used on the people in order to subdue them, but it's also a glimpse into the organisation and community-mindedness of this ancient kingdom. Well worth a visit.

Unfortunately the museum was closed. The old building is being torn down and a new building in its place. Did get to see the palace from the outside and the grounds. Spectacular Indian Rubber tree. Festival of kings every 42 days,but not the day I was there. Should be really good when the museum reopens. 2023?

The palace is closed but allegedly for restoration. The floorboards are taken up but there are nor workers are to be seen an I doubt that that the palace will be reopend in the foreseeable future.

Spent two hours at this musuem in Kumasi, learning all about the Asante kingdom. We had a good tour around the musuem and watched a video at the start explaining some history. There were lots of beautiful peacocks in the gardens of the musuem! A must if you love history
