Stories and facts

The Bisa Abrewa Museum, located in Nkontompo in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis of the Western Region, Ghana, showcases a remarkable collection of sculptural representations made from wood, clay, cement, as well as an array of paintings and photographs.

The museum boasts approximately 2,200 artifacts dedicated to the heroes of Africa's struggle. In addition to these, it features sculptural pieces and photographs of the civil rights movement and notable Black personalities from the French, Portuguese, and Spanish Caribbean.

This museum is believed to be one of the world's largest private collections of artifacts, audiovisuals, and sculptures narrating the African story. It was officially inaugurated on July 28, 2019, in a ceremony attended by Ghana's first lady, Rebecca Akuffo Addo, along with government officials and traditional leaders.

The visionary behind this museum is Kwaw Ansah, an award-winning filmmaker and the founder and first CEO of TV Africa. Ansah began collecting these artifacts 40 years ago, driven by a passion to preserve and showcase the rich history and cultural heritage of Africa and its diaspora.
