  • This museum has some astonishing artifacts (the anchor from the Santa Maria!) and with a well spoken and friendly tour guide, I highly recommend this museum. The building is nice and cool too, so if you're looking for a spot to cool down and still enjoy Haiti this is the place to go :)
  • We were not allowed to take photos inside the museum. This museum is located on Champs de Mars, a public place in the heart of the capital city of Haiti, Port-au-Prince. A lot of things have changed since the last time I've been here. - No smoking permitted. - No eating and no drinking. - No photos 📷 allowed. - Museum staff on premise deterring visitors from taking pictures. - No actual parking. But there's enough parking space if you've rented a car 🚗 to visit around. - Artifacts, paintings, and other historic arts are on exhibition. I would recommend this museum to anyone.
  • 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.
  • It worths a visit. Intresting. A good museum. Really intresting for school class and tourist. Historic tainos artifacts. It's possible have tour with guides. Entry fee not cheap but reasonable. Intresting the garden outside.
  • This icon shacking the all univers, cause is one of the greatest man of the world.
