Shows how slaves were used and lived, the museum is really interesting and the artefacts are well kept and the work is on going with charity donations

A very peaceful place with a lot of history . We enjoyed coming here . We expected to see a sugar plantation, and we were a bit disappointed to find there isn't one anymore.

We visited here as part of a Tour of the Island. We arrived a bit late so the shop wants open. It was interesting to walk around and see the remnants of the plantation, the history is quite moving.

This is the site of the oldest sugar plantation in Antigua and is well worth a visit. There is a small display that gives you an idea of the history of the site and then you can walk around outside where you will find evidence of several buildings, the cane railway and the mills. There is a small suggested donation... More

There are some historically pieces, photos and writings of the slave workers life here. Not a large exhibition but worth a visit if in the area.

Worth a visit if you are driving by. The windmill is the only fully restored one on the island and the historic notes are interesting. It is free but you are asked for a donation

A fascinating insight into how the sugar and rum industry was undertaken in the history of Antigua. Sadly, as history has shown, the use of slaves by the British owners is not something to be proud of.

Learn the history of Antigua (good and bad) in this old sugar plantation. It's small and will only take you 30-45 mins but it's nicely done with info and pictures on the wall and a small model of the site during the past when the site made sugar and rum. Leave a donation for the site upkeep if you wish.

This place is a real eye opener and well worth the visit, you can spend loads of time here and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. I would recommend it for a cultural visit.
