Grounds were beautiful and well kept.. I didn't get to visit the museum, because it's closed on Sundays.. Still there are many vestiges from to past on display on the grounds ( old sugar canes mill, antique carriage, beautiful statues), that offer many opportunities for beautiful photos, while giving you a glimpse of what a grandiose plantation this was back then..

Came here solo, didn’t have a guide, but I read everything and loved all the structures. Would love to go back with a tour guide next time!

A small but historically significant museum. The property is lovely and the inside is packed with history and artifacts. It was one of my favorite excursions.

Our group thoroughly enjoyed our time at the museum. We had an English speaking guide and she was extremely passionate about Haitian history. There are wonderful artifacts, photos, and art. The beautiful grounds surrounding the museum are lovely including the two peacocks. This is a must see if you’re in this part of Haiti.

Response from Charles F, General Manager at Museum Ogier-Fombrun
Responded Aug 27, 2018
Dear customer, Thank you for your visit and appreciation. The property is an authentic sugar cane plantation whose ruins were totally recovered by the work of late Gerard Fombrun, famous Haitian architect who dedicated over 35 years of his life to restore them, moved by a patriotic desire to contribute to the conservation of national and historical heritage This magnificent estate was built in 1760 by the French colonist Guillaume OGIER and abandoned in 1799 during the revolution. The main building, once used to process sugarcane, now houses the Ogier Fombrun Museum. Within the renovated halls, a vast collection of authentic historical objects narrate Haiti’s history and of how it became the nation it is today. The Museum is a place of remembrance and recognition, honoring the extraordinary history of a nation and its heroes, these brave men and women who fought for the abolition of slavery and the quest for Freedom for other nations. We're looking forward to your next visit A bientôt, Rebecca

The museum sits on a couple of acres and is actually not very big. However the exhibit more than makes up for that. It features some incredible artifacts and gives you an inside look into how that part of the world was shaped by the actions of different individuals and eventually countries.
