  • Great historical artifacts and knowledgeable guides. Need more restrooms.
  • We only visited the museum, but it was great. $5 (in 2017) for entry and a personal guide. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The museum was small, but contained a lot of information about the history of Haiti. It also contains information about this specific former plantation on which this museum and Moulin Sur Mer Resort (you'll learn why it's called Moulin Sur Mer!) including the colonial to modern day history.
  • A place where everyone must visit at least once
  • These guys put a kids water trampoline above coral reefs, so if ur child falls off thet could hurt themselves. Either way it was pretty OK.
