Fodor's Expert Review Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park
A large bronze statue and two hectares (five acres) of what used to be a British polo field are dedicated to Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president and one of its founding fathers. This location is where Nkrumah declared independence in 1957. A museum traces Nkrumah’s life, and many of his personal items are on display. The mausoleum is the final resting place of Nkrumah and his wife. Narrated tours are available.
