Haiti surely has a rich heritage in art and (even more so) handicraft. However, you don't find any of that here. This is a museum without artifacts. The exhibits are just some walls posted with texts and pictures about Haitian history. A bit like pages torn out of history textbook meant for elementary school . You would probably get more out of reading about Haiti on Wikipedia. A meaningless kind of museum, a waste of money that could be spent much better, whether on Haiti or in the Haitian communities in the US. Sadly, an example of Haiti at it's worst. The (nice and friendly) staff seemed to well appreciate the nonsense of this museum: Nobody turned up until ½ hour after official opening hours.

I don’t know how this museum passed my attention over the years, but finally I was able to visit the space. Admittedly I am a lover of Haitian Art, so I was a little prejudiced before I made the visit. Instead of paintings, there was a fabulous exhibit of photography by Marc Baptiste. It was also good fortune that the curator of the museum Evelyn was there to take us from photograph to photograph. She was so passionate, informative, and inspiring that I knew right then and there I was in the right place at the right time. As a special bonus, the discussion of art extrapolated into a discussion that was art unto itself.

I had an excellent time at the Haitian Heritage Museum! Upon arrival, I was greeted by one of the founders of the museum, Serge. He was very friendly and welcoming. He educated me on the history of the museum, and why it was created. In doing so, he also gave me a brief history of Haitians in Miami, Little Haiti, and, the country of Haiti itself. The passion Serge and his team have for Haiti, Haitians, and Haitian culture is highly evident in their carefully curated pieces on display. Their current physical location is temporary until they are able to build a permanent site. With that in mind, the pieces on display can be viewed as a "sneak peek" of what is to come once they move to their permanent site. I would highly recommend a visit here for anyone who likes art, history, Haitian culture, or looking for an experience off the beaten path.
