  • Came here solo, didn’t have a guide, but I read everything and loved all the structures. Would love to go back with a tour guide next time!

  • The museum was closed early when we went but even just visiting the grounds was such an experience. They're perfectly manicured and maintained and so beautiful to walk around. Very impactful being on a former slave plantation, very eery and sad, but there are some fabulous sculptures that pay homage to their sacrifice. You learn a ton about Haitian history and the artifacts in the museum looked really cool through the window. All the workers were very friendly. 100% a must-see, even to make a day trip from PaP just for this!
  • 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.
  • If you're unfamiliar with Haiti's history, this is a great place to get your first overview. The layout of the property and building's interior is very nice. And the artifacts are very interesting. It's not large, but give yourself enough time to look and ask questions. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. And don't forget to bring cash and exact change - they have a cute, little gift shop.
  • 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 strongly recommend Moulin sur Mer to anyone going on a trip to Haiti. I was there last weekend for a class reunion. The staff was very courteous. They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The food was delicious well presented. The service was impeccable. I can't wait to go back.
