Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park contains a magnificent marble mausoleum and the last resting place of the country's first prime minister and president. A tall bronze statue of this famous pan-African leader sits on very spot from which Nkrumah declared independence from Britain in 1957. Built in 1992, the mausoleum features a catafalque and a paved park area with fountains and sculptures. An underground museum beneath the complex features an impressive collection of photographs of world leaders with whom Nkrumah worked, detailing events from Ghana's tumultuous history.

Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park Reviews
It is one of the exciting attractions to visit in Ghana, it gives you the history of our first President. With all the beautiful fountain, Dignitaries gardens, the statues. more »
This location is open all week long and it’s easy to get in. However there is no one to welcome you when you walk in and there are no guides. You may walk by a gentleman or two as you walk through... more »
Good thing you can do with friends and family there is different pricing for none Ghanaians but entry fee includes entry to the museum and someone gives a tour of the exhibition. The memorial has a beautiful setup it makes for good location chilling and taking in history I believe at night it lights up beautifully
A place where Ghana's life begins. The good memories of the first President of Ghana are kept here and I see it to be where the real history of Ghana begins here. If his legacy can be taken and worked upon by every other African President, Africa will rise again and shall impact the world.
