She toured an infant clinic in Accra and met with Ghana's first lady at the presidential palace after she arrived Tuesday.
She also visited the Cape Coast castle, a former slave fort, on the second day of her solo trip to Ghana.
"Akwaaba (Welcome) to Cape Coast", read a sign hung from the whitewashed walls of the Cape Coast Castle, some 145 kilometres (90 miles) from the capital, Accra.
Ghana is the jumping-off point for her first major solo worldwide trip for Melania as first lady, a tour of Africa, a continent her husband reportedly referred to derisively.
In fact, the first lady went out of her way to make her outfit look more like last year's version; for her first outing on Wednesday morning, which saw her paying a visit to local chiefs in order to get permission to visit the castle, Melania had accessorized the jacket with a thick leather belt.
She calls Wednesday's visit to Cape Coast Castle "very emotional" and says the castle is "really something that people should see and experience". The first lady is visiting Africa on her first big solo global trip, aiming to make child well-being the focus of a five-day, four-country tour.
Mrs. Trump spent about 10 minutes inside the cramped male slave dungeon.

Greater Accra Regional Hospital was the first stop of the day, where the two first ladies joined ten mothers and their babies.
But unlike her predecessors, her visit will be followed closely to see if she can build bridges after the president reportedly dismissed Africa as a collection of "shithole countries".
