The Cultural Center, Kumasi

It is about a five minute walk from the central market of Kumasi (Kejetia).
The Cultural Center is one of the biggest and impressive. There is a museum of Ashanti history (Prempeh II Jubilee Museum), a library, a book store, an excellent crafts shop and an exhibition hall. This is where you can buy souvenirs of the highest quality and for a cool price. The great thing it islocated in the centre of the city and it is very accessible.

The whole complex is large and it feels like it is a small village within it and actually quite pleasant just walking inside it.
The National Cultural Centre is set within peaceful, shaded grounds and includes craft workshops, where you can see brassworking, woodcarving, pottery making, batik cloth dyeing and kente cloth weaving, as well as a gallery and crafts shop
