  • Outstanding museum! Learned so much history and the mill wheel that turns is really cool. It's a tragic experience of so many slaves. Our family really appreciated our visit. Oh, and the gift shop is great too!
  • I've been coming here since I was a kid, great place to visit and learn a lot about the history of Haiti
  • Great museum of Haitian History
  • A most interesting museum, nested in a sugarcane plantation dating from colonial times, where local guides welcome you to a guided visit throughout the history of Haiti and its predominent role in the abolition of slavery and colnialism. A must see!
  • It was very nice get some thorough Haitian history. When we arrived we were greeted with fresh cane juice with the option of adding really good Haitian rhum. They also demonstrated the actual operational water mill. The grounds outside the museum are also beautiful but our tour was a little rushed due to poor scheduling on the tour companies part so we didn't get to explore as much as we wanted but it was still nice. The tour manager was very apologetic and understanding and offered proper compensation.
