Ho, Volta

The Volta Regional Museum established in 1973 focuses on ethnographic history or Ewes. It currently exhibits local paintings, traditional artefacts, old Chieftaincy regalia, and wooden sculptures.

The Volta Regional Museum was established under the act of the government of Ghana and was made to preserve the material tradition of the Ewes. The building was first used as the office of the regional traditional council of chiefs. The office was then sold to the government in 1967 and opened to the public as a museum in 1973.
