Accra museums, with its rich culture and colonial history, give insight into the lives of Ghanaians both past and present. Visitors to Accra may experience the history and cultural exchange given by museums in a handful of places across the city, despite the limited selections. The following are the top museums in Accra:

National Museum of Ghana

This is one of Ghana’s oldest museums, having been founded in 1957. The exhibits here span from archaeological findings reaching back to pre-historic times through colonial artifacts to current African art, and they include some unique displays that reflect the numerous chapters of Ghanaian history. There’s also a fascinating permanent display with indigenous musical instruments, ceramics, and Ashanti gold weights, which were previously used to assess the pricing of products. The National Museum has antiquities from various African nations as well as Ghanaian items. There are also various temporary displays that change on a regular basis.

Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park

This park honors the country’s founding father and has a modest museum that gives a pleasant and complete summary of Ghana’s current leader. This museum, which has many personal things and images, is on the route to the National Museum and is a must-see for history fans. The whole museum can be explored in about an hour, and you should take the time to tour the grounds outside as well, as the fountains and extensive green space provide a welcome respite from the city’s hustle and bustle.

W.E.B. Du Bois Center Memorial Centre for Pan African Culture

Visit the ultimate resting site of William Edward Burghardt Dubois, an American-born social justice hero, and learn more about his life and achievements. This museum, located in his house and personal library, has several meeting rooms and halls that are utilized for cultural and commercial events throughout the year, as well as a small museum section. This facility, which attracts thousands of tourists each year, also hosts a variety of theatrical performances, musical and dance numbers, and other events throughout the year. Check the museum’s website to see whether your visit will coincide with a scheduled event, and plan appropriately.

Visit these museums on your trip to Accra for a more in-depth look at Ghana’s culture and history. The National Museum is a must-see, and the other two museums will appeal to anybody interested in history and culture. They provide a good insight of the lives of two powerful individuals who have made Accra their home.
