Visit the military museum of Kumasi, also known as Fort George which was the British headquarters in Kumasi. This is the same fort where Yaa Asantewaa, the warrior queen mother of Ashanti, led a siege during the Yaa Asantewaa War in 1900. This siege eventually led to the death of numerous British officials who were unable to gain access to food and water during the siege. Yaa Asantewaa was eventually captured and imprisoned by British troops in the same fort.
Continue to the Okomfo Anokye sword site where the famous traditional priest Okomfo Anokye conjured the golden stool of Ashanti from the sky one Friday morning. This is where he planted the famous sword which no man born of a woman can pull out.
Then, you’ll continue the tour to the Prempeh II Jubilee Museum at the cultural center. This museum was commissioned by Nana sir Osei Agyeman Prempeh I.
Finally, end the tour at Manhyia Palace, the Ashanti white house, where you’ll learn about the royal empire and rich lineage of the Ashanti as well as their culture and exploits during the Ashanti British War.
