I was lucky to get the services of a tour guide who is on site. Listening to her give the background to the pictures and artifacts definitely made this an interesting and enjoyable visit. Had I just gone around on my own, I think I would have been very disappointed and got little to nothing out of the visit.
There's a small book shop on site for those who'd like to know more about Ghana's history and fight for independence.

During my half day tour around Accra on Monday 27/11/17 we called into the National Museum Of Ghana for the first stop with my driver / tour guide &, unfortunately on arrival we were informed from staff the Museum is still closed due to renovations & could be another six months before completion. Very Disappointing especially being the National Museum

We stumbled upon this museum as we were on another outing. Though things are not yet perfect here it was a delightful experience. I think we will take friends when they visit next month

Went to the National Museum with an old friend from Abu Dhabi as our first point of call on our Accra tour. It was an embarrassing site. The building is supposed to have been locked up for renovation about three years ago. There was absolutely no sign of construction work going on and all you could see were what seemed to be a few statutes dumped outside. It is a complete waste of time going to this hollow place.

When I first visited the Museum in 2002 Nkrumah's statue was broken up and laying in a side yard. Now it is restored. The displays are still be bit dusty, but the variety of cultural artifacts is the best I've seen. If I remember correctly, photography is not permitted.
