Museum of Science and Technology (MST), Accra (1963)
The Museum of Science and Technology in Accra was established when two lecturers from the Legon Campus of the University of Ghana, identified a need to create awareness of past and current developments in science and technology in Ghana, and presented a proposal for the development of the institution to Kwame Nkrumah, the then president of Ghana. A short time later, in 1965, the Museum of Science and Technology opened its doors. The institution endeavors to inspire those who visit, particularly its more youthful guests, with a desire to discover more about the sciences and technological development in the world around them.
Exhibits include a human heart and a piece of stone from the moon. The museum incorporates a library, and provides educational activities for children.
Opening hours are 9:00am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.
