The female guide is not really good at communication, especially in English but the place is a nice site to see in case you have an interest in ancient armaments
A very knowledgeable tour guide brought this visit to the top place of my visit. It is filled with memorabilia and lots of pictures as well as as replicas. The exhibit that was most touching was the UN Room which had exhibits of crude weapons used during Rwanda genocide. Worthwhile seeing to learn about Ghana's role in the world wars as well as part of its peacekeeping missions.
very ancient like, nice place to visit to know about the military back then.
There's a lot of history here about the military growth of the nation from pre colonial times to date. This then ties in to how far Ghana and its tribes have come.
It's a museum inside a historic landmark, for a two-for-one bonanza. This place was originally a fort built by the Asantehene to rival those built by the British in Cape Coast. It was eventually razed down (by the British, naturally) in the course of war, and rebuilt years later. It is famous for being the site of the siege by Asante warriors to free the great Queenmother Yaa Asantewaa. Get the full story when you visit the museum. There is also a fascinating story about Perry Martin gun, that the guides like to tell. Entry fee is affordable, though it's a bit higher for foreigners than locals. There's a treasure trove of history waiting to be discovered in there, and it is well worth the visit.
