  • The Accra regional centre for culture, “The Arts Center”,is better known simply as the National Center for Culture in Accra, Ghana. It is situated right next to the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, where the Kwame Nkrumah Museum is.

    There you will find what is virtually the tourist heaven of Ghana. It has got everything from woven Kente cloth, wooden sculptures, bead works, leather bags, earrings and other fashion accessories, the latest in African Attire fashion and good-quality handicrafts from all over Ghana.

    A warren of stalls selling arts and crafts.There are arts and crafts bazaars and a traditional textile market with souvenirs that have been crafted in clay, wood, leather and metal. There is also indoor market with stalls having footwear, tee shirts and other souvenirs.

    There is an art gallery, which sells traditional handicrafts from all over Ghana at reasonable prices. There are a never ending array of goods in numerous stalls that may not even be able to shop.
