“Interesting History!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We really enjoyed the history associated with Estate Whim - it gave a great context for what life must have been like on all of the plantation estates on St. Croix. The house and grounds were in decent repair, and the information regarding the slave trade in the exhibits was very informative. I marked Estate Whim as only three stars due to the tour: our guide really rushed us through the house, with little opportunity to take pictures or to ask questions.

“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).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

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
