The National Museum Gallery which was closed for refurbishment in 2015 is officially open to the public. Gracing the reopening was His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the Republic of Ghana and some dignitaries.

The facility, located on the premises of the Ghana Museums and Monuments Board in Adabraka, Accra, had not seen any major refurbishment since it was first opened on the 5th of March 1957.

The Museum has now been fully rehabilitated, and restored to its original state with the inclusion of additional exhibits and artefacts.

The renovated edifice is expected to attract about 150,000 visitors each year and will contribute significantly to the country’s agenda of achieving domestic tourist arrivals of one million by 2024 which will help promote Ghana in becoming a leading tourist destination.

The National museum will serve a large variety of audience including domestic and foreign tourists, researchers, educationists, students, tour guides and families.

On display are objects from the field of Ethnography, Archaeology and Arts. In addition to the exhibition, 7 vehicles used by former heads of state, including 3 E450 Mercedes-Benz vehicles, 2 Nissan Patrols, a limousine, and a Toyota Land Cruiser.

The Museum is open to the public everyday, from 9:00am to 4:30pm.
