Places to Visit

Ghana Armed Forces Museum

The museum buildings once served as Kumasi Fort, built by the British in 1896 after they destroyed the Asante Fort that originally stood here. The museum predominantly features information and artifacts related to the British-Asante War, but also includes many artifacts from World War I, World War II, and information about modern Ghanaian military history.


Manhyia Palace Museum

Built in 1925 by the British as the residence of King Asantehene Prempeh I, this museum is also a palace. Walking through the museum, you will learn about the function of each room when it was used by the kings, as well as seeing artwork and artifacts from the Asante kings

Prempeh II Jubilee Museum

 Features artifacts and personal belongings of former Asante kings

Kumasi Zoo

All of the animals from the former Accra Zoo were transferred here a couple years ago, so there is now more to see

Asantehene's Palace

A visit to this former king's residence is a most worthwhile activity
