Ghana's Pan African Heritage Museum Launches Its Virtual Version
As Travel Noire previously reported in February, Ghana will host the Pan African Heritage Museum. Scheduled to open in August 2023, the museum, the first of its kind in the world, will house archives, exhibits, galleries, and a theater, with the aim of being a key destination for visitors interested in connecting with Africa’s history and its people’s heritage. The museum will be located in Accra, Ghana’s capital. But if you want to experience a sample of this project, the Pan African Heritage World Museum has launched its digital version.
Coordinated by UNESCO, the Pan African Heritage World Museum, also known as Pan African Heritage Museum, is an international NGO-registered project inaugurated by Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo. Projected to be completed for commissioning in August 2023, the Museum’s promoters have created the Digital Version of the galleries for public viewing.
In fact, it is a great opportunity for people of the world, and particularly Africans, to celebrate the continent’s unique cultural and natural heritage through the internet while the museum is under construction.
“This is a unique moment for us. We are making history, not just in presenting for the first time the history, cultural arts and achievements of Africans and people of African descent in one museum, we are also breaking grounds in giving the world the first Digital Museum ahead of physical construction, “ the Museum Founder and Executive Chairman Kojo Yankah said in a press release.
Kojo Yankah emphasized that the Pan African Heritage Museum, based in Ghana, Africa, is one more addition to the hundreds of museums across the world as it is distinguished by its mission to create in one site the heritage of a people from the beginning of the world civilization to the present. “It is unique for its vision, scope, and location on a hill; but even more relevant, it is created to Educate, Heal and Inspire generations to come! It is our contribution to the creation of better humanity! I welcome you to be a part of this unique journey.”
