National Museum of Ghana Reviews
Just at the museum today to see what was happening with the re-opening. Now say "end of 2019" but not much going on. They do have a nice exhibit in one of the out buildings on Ghanian architecture. more »
There were no exhibits on display - we got a chance to look at the sculptures and the first President's car which is on concrete blocks in the yard, in an unbelievable state of disrepair. 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.
