Museum visit

On my last day in Ghana we visited the monument and museum for first President of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.  Its a nice park with an outdoor display of the many books he wrote, lots of trees planted by visiting dignitaries, and a huge pyramidesque monument surrounded by a large pond and many statues.  

The display tells the story of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and has many pictures of where he grew up, his influences, and his memorable quotes.  Inside the monument is his tomb.  

Behind the monument is a museum with more pictures and artifacts from the life of the first president of Ghana.  Including all his old dorm furniture from when he was an undergrad student in the states (Lincoln University, PA).
