This museum is modern with all the best equipment, but tells a story that is old and little known, and most people do not want to hear. It is a necessary museum, to remind us of the terrible plight of the African people who were...More

This Memorial Acte is huge. We can be there for a short time, however, we would miss the best of it. Generally we need at least 3 hours. It is truly worthwhile and we learn a lot about slavery and the abolition of slavery. I...More

To me unfortunately the museum didn't look too much like museum. A lot of videos shown and little exposition. Topic is interesting but it could be presented better possibly. The museum has the potential but it is not thgere yet. Audioguide is a cool idea...More
