Manhiya Palace Museum (Asantehene's Palace)

In 1925, the British government built the Manhyia Palace as a home for Prempeh I upon his return from exile in the Seychelles, and it remained a royal residence for Prempeh I and Prempeh II until the early 1970s. 

Today, the Asantehene’s Palace houses the Manhyia Palace Museum, opened in 1995 to display the residence’s original furnishings and royal memorabilia, including Asanteman’s first television and wax statues of several kings and queens of Ashanti. Besides the museum collection, the building itself is a good example of traditional Ashanti architecture from the turn of the century.

Practical Info

If possible, plan your visit during the Adae festivities, which take place every sixth Sunday, when you can see the current Asantehene receive homage from his subjects. It’s a formal event, but tourists are welcome to observe.
