The Museum, which is part of a larger 75-acre Heritage World City project including AUCC, and to be sited on Pomadze Hills, near Winneba Junction, will be launched worldwide on 21st September, 2020 via Zoom, Facebook, YouTube and other media.

The 30 million dollar project has received endorsement from the African Union Commission, UNESCO, the Office of Diasporan Affairs at the Office of the President of Ghana, and the Association of African Universities.
