  • Well worth a visit. Exhibits of surprisingly good variety and quality. $10 entry. Toilets. Items for purchase at the entrance.
  • Very nice and quaint museum with a surprising amount of artifacts. There is a pre chosen path to guide you and I amazed at the slave section, it was very informative and helps remind us of past crimes against our fellow humans.
