  • This museum is so nicely laid out and informative. And, we had a tour guide, Mr. Venold, who was spectacular. We learned so much about the origins and culture of Haiti.

  • i was thier for 7 months joining with UN police, the people thier they are nice and the country have nice places also
  • The most underrated and overlooked Museum in the world. A must visit and learn not just for Haitians but anyone interested in world history. It’s a treasure and wealth of information. Really enjoyed the free guide who explained everything in English. Photos prohibited inside.
  • The museum is nice. It has a good collection of artifacts and paintings. Unfortunately you cannot take any photos inside. If you visit make sure to go around the garden and perhaps visit the restaurant in the back garden.
  • Great English speaking tour guide. Amazing artifacts and Haitian history of the presidents. You can't take pics do don't try
  • Learned quite a bit of history here. The restaurant was closed for renovations. There's a nice garden area in the back for pictures. If you don't speak French or kreyol, be sure to ask for a tour guide to walk you through the museum. And of course, no photos allowed inside.
