Yaa Asantewaa Museum
In 2004 the museum was gutted by a fire. Most of its relics that were inside were destroyed, and only a few clay pots remained. As a result of the fire and closure of the museum, tourism within the area significantly decreased.
In October 2009, local leaders expressed a desire to refurbish the museum, and in 2016 UNICEF agreed to contribute US$10 million towards its reconstruction. The new facility will be constructed on a 14-acre plot of land.
