Beautiful, amazing art and artifacts... an aqueduct water powered mill (yep, from 1700s) in working condition, original paintings, objects explaining slavery .... pottery of the 1400's. It's here. Perfectly presented and with a most patient and knowledgeable guide.

We really enjoyed our tour of the museum which had both Haitian history going back to Christopher Columbus and then the revolution. And of the sugar industry. Would also recommend visiting the gift shop (which is air conditioned:)
