National Museum of Ghana

The museum building was opened on 5 March 1957 as part of Ghana’s independence celebrations. The official opening was performed by Duchess of Kent, the late Princess Marina. The Museum's first Director was A.W. Lawrence.

Objects of archeology, ethnography as well as fine art find place in the National Museum building.
Objects at the archeology section range from the stone age period to the recent historical past. Those on permanent exhibition at the ethnography gallery include chief’s regalia, indigenous Ghanian musical instruments, gold-weights, beads, traditional textiles, stools and pottery.


There are also objects from other African countries acquired through exchange. Examples are Senfu masks from La Cote D’ Ivoire, Zulu wooden figures and bead-ware from Southern Africa.
In addition there are also ancient Ife bronze heads from Nigeria and Bushongo carvings from the Congo. Exhibits at the small but impressive art gallery consist mainly of contemporary Ghanian paintings executed in oil, pasted, acrylic, watercolour and collages.


Apart from these there are sculpture pieces in different media
Temporary exhibitions are held not only by the National Museum but also by individuals and foreign embassies.

Newsletter


Guided tours are provided and films on some aspects of Ghanian culture are shown
by the staff of the Education Section.
It is more than our wish that every guest, while enjoying his or her visit to the National Museum, adds some more knowledge to what he or she might have already about Ghana’s material cultural heritage.
