The Museum

The Manhyia Palace Museum was created within the old residence of Otumfuo Agyeman Prempeh I and Otumfuo Sir Osei Agyeman Prempeh II, the thirteenth and fourteenth Kings of Asante respectively. This historic building was rehabilitated in 1995 at the cost of approximately twelve thousand Ghana cedis (GHc12,000) to serve as a Museum. The cost of rehabilitation was met by generous contributions in cash and in kind by friends and well-wishers of Asanteman and the King.
