  • Great museum, Amazing place to retrace our history. We had a great time learning about Haitian history. A place for historical research. Interesting architecture and history.
  • Great museum, full of interesting information about Haiti's struggle for independence. There aren't any English descriptions, but there may be a staff member that can show you around. There are many artefacts dating from independence to look at. The museum is well worth the small admission fee to get further insight into the nation of Haiti.
  • At MUPANAH you can find full History about the Slave revolution and the Haiti Independence.
  • A shining gem in Port au Prince where one can learn the history of this dynamic nation. Full of artifacts arranged to visually lead you through from uprising to today along with knowledgeable guides, this is a place to not miss. Remember, first and foremost, this is a tomb of respected leaders so remove your hat and take no pictures. The brochure says they take American dollars and they reluctantly accepted ours however Haitian Gourde is now the only accepted payment.
  • Good place to learn about history of Haiti. Unfortunately labels and explanations are in French only.
