Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and Mausoleum are situated in downtown Accra, Ghana. It was built in the honour of the prominent Ghanian leader, Kwame Nkrumah. The mausoleum was designed by Don Aurther and houses the body of Kwame Nkrumah and his wife Fathia Nkrumah. The construction is meant to portray an upside down sword which in Akan culture symbolizes peace. The park is filled with bronze statues, fountains and peacocks that roam around. It accommodates collections of Nkrumah's personal belongings, including the smock he wore while declaring Ghana’s independence. There are copies of personal correspondence and many photos of Kwame Nkrumah with various world leaders.
