Manhyia Palace Museum
This small but nice building houses one of the country’s most well-kept and informative museums. You will surely be impressed with the rich and well documented history of the Ashanti Kingdom and will get to see statues of past kings of this great kingdom. With such a great culture and history as Asantes, the museum presents many things you will learn. Among the displays are artifacts relating to the Ashanti King Prempeh II, including the king’s war attire, ceremonial clothing, jewelry, protective amulets, personal equipment for bathing and dining, furniture, royal insignia and some fine brass weights for weighing gold. You would also find the Ashanti war drum. This drum, used was as a weapon would make a deafening roaring sound like that of a lion or leopard which scares away enemies. Get to see a 300-year-old treasure bag which is forbidden for anyone to open.
The place is very well kept and you will not fail to marvel at the well-manicured lawns and peacocks, yes peacocks!
