A very informative museum into how black people were exploited as slaves, thank goodness we have moved on from those times.
Seeing the conditions on the slave ships was heart wrenching to think human beings were once subjected to these conditions. It was quite upsetting to see the rusty remnants of shackles that were used to tether these slaves.
Looking at the atrocities that have taken place in the Congo, where both adults and children were mutilated by having their hands cut off was very sickening to see.
The museum contains display cabinets and wall tableaux as well as recorded commentaries and film shows.
What really sickened me was the details of aristocratic families in the UK who still live in their stately mansions, paid for with money they earned from the slave trade. These people should be forced to visit the museum to see the suffering that took place.
A visit to the museum is a must for people of all races, to show how we have progressed from the days when the colour of a man's skin denoted him as being only fit to work as a slave.
