National Museum of Ghana reviews
Very closed as of Feb 2020. Construction was in process and the staff mentioned a possible re-opening in March 2020, but that sounded too optimistic. Everything was boarded up, and even the sculpture.... more »
Still closed as of December 29, 2019. Idris informer is there’s no funds and plan for reopening. He did give us a nice tour of the sculpture garden that took about 30 minutes. more »
They can do better... Parts of statues are falling off... though they want to maintain them in their original form but they can do a better job.. And the environment is very clean and inviting
Main hall under renovation for a few more months. Was shown to a room with photos of key buildings in Accra and around the country. Polite staff. Some statues in the lawn but description so a bit hard to understand. Still worth a visit.
