A yet-to-be-opened museum in Accra, Ghana is getting people across the world excited. The Pan African Heritage Museum is set to open in August 2023. TIME Magazine said it will be among the top 100 world's greatest places to visit. TIME wrote: "It will house archives, exhibits, galleries, and a theater, [and will be] a key destination for visitors interested in connecting with Africa's history and its people's heritage." Ghana's president said the museum will "provide a natural residence and resting place for all the looted cultural artefacts of our continent, which are housed in foreign museums and which will be returned to us". A digital version of the museum was launched on May the 5th.

The man who thought of the idea for the museum is Kojo Acquah Yankah. He is a former newspaper editor, MP and cabinet minister. He said the idea came to him after seeing 5,000 people of African descent at an event for the 375th anniversary of the forced arrival of Africans in the USA. He said: "This inspired me to create the museum to unite Africans and people of African descent." He wants "to raise the self-confidence of Africans as a people with a rich history and heritage". He added: "The museum is special because it's the only one bringing all African heritage together under one roof." He said there are fewer than 2,000 museums in Africa, compared with over 30,000 in Europe and in the USA.
