    Slavery is a topic that will never have the same point of view from one continent to another, from one generation to another... Also discussions on the subject will be always difficult. Also coming on this site, I thought that we would talk of slavery in the Caribbean... and the surprise... not! It is to try to touch the history of this practice and its purpose... Erase a very uninteresting immersion, with a few nuances to not embarrass some countries, but that deserves to exist... As already said about it being difficult your opinions will be share... then visit this place to share positive and constructive... Unique in the world and reward by the European institution. Really hit you?

    Place is a must to visit, to learn or to get rich on the history of slavery. The site is well located, between Pointe-A-Pitre and the throat. The Marina is 10 minutes.

    Quite possibly the world's best museum of the history of slavery. The exhibits are well designed and educational. The building is a modern design - visually intriguing outside and well laid out inside

    Very nice building, but it looks very out of place! Nice open wi-fi though!
