#3 of 4 Museums in Kumasi
... really worth a visit - I find the history of the Ashanti region very interesting, and it links up to what you learn in terms of history from visiting some of the other sites in Kumasi such as the Palace Museum.
The museum staff is extremely knowledgeable and gives a vivid recount of the history.
