The Ogier-Fombrun Museum will greet you with stories dating from the pre-colombian indian era to colonial times of 1794, when Haiti used to be the largest producer of sugar in the Caribbean.The property is an authentic sugar cane plantation whose ruins were totally recovered by the work of Architect Gerard Fombrun during more than 35 years of personal involvement. The authentic stone aqueduct which still exists, continues to run water to a gigantic 20 feet wooden wheel which was used to extract the juice from the cane.The "Etuve", which was used to heat up the "melasse", still exists and is reminiscent of a rich past.

Went to visit this museum not knowing what to expect. The grounds are beautifully kept. We met the owner and she gave us a private tour. Its always sad hearing the life of a slave, this was once a plantation that is now a museum.

The museum is beautiful and the employees were very nice and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the tour. The only thing is that there were lots of mosquitoes. I suggest applying some repellant and you should be fine.

It was a short tour, but very informational. Great for those who loves Haiti and it's history. Beautiful, manicured grounds.

I loved the hotel and it's grounds so much I didn't want to leave. I thought touches like the museum and the ducks, swans, monkeys and turtle were wonderful touches. My husband and I were charmed and we want to return very soon.

A good general overview of Haiti's rich history. The fact that it is part of the hotel was a unque touch and investment in the community and country.

Although the museum was under construction while we were staying at Moulin Sur Mer in Montrouis, we just happen to run into a guide who gave us a very interesting tour and walked us around the grounds. He was very knowledgeable and answered our questions with ease. We learn a lot about the country's history. As it was once called,... More

No Chairs/tables on balconies, nice, but poorly trained staff and upgrading needed. I did no feel the presence of the managers or supervisors ensuring that guest were happy and comfortable.
