  • A powerful audio visual experience. Superb presentation of a very difficult subject. The background to early Guadeloupe and in particular a timeline of slavery. Well worth a visit, and don't rush, it deserves your time.
  • Amazing museum which focuses on history of slavery. French/English signage and well produced audio guide. Powerful exhibits and I would recommend for everyone.
