Best military museum in Kumasi housing the history of the Ghana Arm Forces. Tour guides are excellent. City centre, Adum location makes it easy to access.

I spent a few hours walking through the fort which holds a good collection of military arms accoutrements and memorabilia. Was disappointed but the quality of the tour guide. She was asking for money and wasn't too excited about what she was doing. I will...More
