The exhibit shows both the lives of the plantation owners as well as the slaves that lived on the premises. It also highlights many contemporary issues in heritage and archaeology management.

The museum provides a great lesson on the history of the island and the role slavery played in it. There were a couple of pigs and donkeys on site, too!
