“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

The museum is situated about two miles east of Frederiksted. It is a three-room historically restored plantation house that dates to the era of the Danes. In the early 18th century, Estate Whim was part of the trade triangle: sugar, rum, and slavery.

“Cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The guides take you through the main house and the rest is a walking tour of the property. This was our third trip to the island and our second to the estate. On both occasions, we had great guides who were very knowledgable about the local history and life on the estate during it's operation.

Tour guide very helpful. Overall good tour. Lovely place to spend the afternoon. The master's house was very cool. The windmill is a must see (for me).

The great thing about Estate Whim is they are linked to other groups if you do a membership like I did so you can get a lot done in one shot

“Need a lot of upkeep to maintain this piece of history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Easy to miss as it is confusing to find things in St. Croix. We found there isn't a great deal of tourism updates on the road signs and maps. This area could flourish if they would spend time to energize these beautiful areas and maintain the historical sites. I would love to live here.
