The Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park honors Dr. Nkrumah's life and the contributions he made to Ghana and Africa. The park's grounds, which house his and his wife's remains, were constructed over the site of a historic British polo field. The monument's design has an upside-down sword that stands for peace, is covered in Italian marble, and has a black star on top that represents pan-African unification.The memorial in this location includes a museum, a mausoleum, a park, and the remains of Dr. Nkrumah and his wife Fathia.
Visitors can view exhibits in English at the museum and mausoleum, where information about Kwame Nkrumah's life from his birth and education through his passing in the 1970s is presented. A lot of private belongings are also on exhibit, including the president's former personal vehicle. The trip lasts for around 30 minutes and ends in the mausoleum, which features a skylight over his grave to provide light.
Not only are the museum and mausoleum the site's main attractions, but the park itself is also lovely and well worth a stroll through. On 5 acres (2 hectares) of land that has been tended and landscaped with statues and fountain features, there is a park named after Kwame Nkrumah.
Water surrounds the tomb, representing life, and viewing the museum portion from the outside allows you to fully appreciate the design and architecture that went into constructing Nkrumah's mausoleum.
