During an Editors Forum organized by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture in collaboration with the Ghana Tourism Authority, Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, announced an ambitious plan to revitalize the historic Osu Castle in Ghana.
The Osu Castle will be transformed into the “Presidential and Governance Museum,” curating the legacy of every president and government that has contributed to the nation’s history.
Dr. Awal’s vision for the Osu Castle transformation aims to turn it into a cultural attraction and source of historical significance. The plan involves modernizing the castle and putting busts of all former presidents, including colonial administrators, on display for tourists. This transformation aims to attract both domestic and international tourists, providing them with insights into Ghana’s history and governance structures.
The Minister also revealed plans to modernize the DuBois Centre, another significant cultural landmark in Ghana. The DuBois Centre is set to be transformed into a tourist center, enhancing its appeal and cultural value.
These initiatives align with Ghana’s efforts to leverage its unique heritage sites and cultural landmarks to boost tourism and economic growth. The “Destination Ghana” initiative, building on the success of the Year of Return, aims to attract 2 million tourists annually from the United Kingdom and Europe by 2026, generating USD 6 billion every year.
The transformation of historic landmarks like the Osu Castle and the modernization of cultural centers like the DuBois Centre reflect the government’s commitment to preserving Ghana’s heritage and using it as a tool for promoting tourism and national pride.
