The museum was filled with many things du Bois. He wrote many books and two rooms are filled with books. There are also photographs and a sculpture of him. The guide was very informative.

Overall this attraction was pretty underwhelming. The house itself is well preserved and there are some artifacts from mr Dubois’s lifetime. The tour guide tried her best to capture the essence of his life and time in Ghana. Personally I don’t believe that this centre...More
