Welcome to our website



The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, welcomes you to its website, which is intended to inform you about the rich cultural and diverse heritage which are depicted in forts and castles, festivals, and arts and craft; evergreen forests and wonders of nature like mountains, lakes and waterfalls which abound in Ghana.

In addition, you would have the opportunity of being introduced to a myriad of programmes and activities that the sector is engaged in. Through such programmes, you will get first-hand information about the rich and entertaining music, cultural dances and unique languages which surely will spice up your life.

The Tourism and Creative Arts sector is labour-intensive, supports a diverse and versatile labour market.  It provides small-scale employment opportunities, such as travel and tours, handicrafts, music and dance, Ghanaian cuisine and many more, which have the potential of attracting investors into the sector. This website will therefore be used to showcase some of the potentials that we have as a country in order to attract visitors and investors alike.

This website has been designed to reach out to all and sundry.  Your comments and suggestions are therefore necessary to help us improve upon our services.

Thank you.
