This museum is so nicely laid out and informative. And, we had a tour guide, Mr. Venold, who was spectacular. We learned so much about the origins and culture of Haiti.

This museum contains the remains of our national heroes. It is one of the greatest Haitian national heritage. A place that brings us back to our history and our culture. This is the memory of our people.

The building itself builds suspense as you descend beneath ground to visit the sacred remains of Haiti’s forefathers and then learn a bit about pre-Colonial life on the island and then the intriguing and eclectic lineage of Haitian heads of state. There are numerous interesting artifacts including one of the most impactful I’ve seen in any museum worldwide - the anchor from Columbus’ Santa Maria. Unfortunately all the signs are in French and parts of the exhibit can feel dated, but I imagine the Museum is operating on a very limited budget. There is also a gallery of Haitian contemporary art that adds lots of value to the visit and an interesting multimedia space that includes the tennis racket used by 2018 US Open winner Naomi Osaka, the first person of Haitian descent to win a Grand Slam. I would have liked to have visited the restaurant and gardens but they were closed for repairs.

Port-auPrince lacks a bit in traditional tourist attractions, and this museum can't be missed. An extremely well curated collection showcasing Haiti's long and rich history. Christopher Columbus landed here first and seeing the anchor is a treasure (though Haiti's history didn't start here).

The museum provided an outstanding overview of Haiti's history. We were very moved following the stories of the country's past. Our guide spoke fluent English and provided excellent information throughout our visit.
