Mr. Abdourahamane Diallo, the Head of Office and Representative of UNESCO to Ghana, who described the museum as the vision of bringing the past to present to help educate the nation and the world about the history of Africa particularly Ghana in the form of art, culture, music, and even politics , said it was a laudable venture.
Mr. Diallo lauded the founder for the invitation of the Diplomats to have a first-hand information on past happenings and what people should learn to improve their knowledge for the future.
He was excited about the visit and commended mangers of the museum for the manner in which each section was beautifully organised to tell visitors the whole history.
Mr. Abel Antonio Cardens Tuppia the Head of Mission, Embassy of Peru in Ghana said the name Bisa Aberwa, which means "Ask an Old Lady" was a great source of inspiration in telling the history of the past.
He said artifacts in the Bisa Abrewa Museum explored the beauty of nature and happenings in the past.
