Situated on the site of a former slave yard, the emotionally testing museum recounts a brutal history and illuminates humanity’s capacity for violence and exploitation. You’ll have the chance to inspect letters, drawings, and other artifacts from the era, giving you a direct perspective on a bygone era. Consider hiring a tour guide at a small extra charge to get an in-depth explanation of the exhibits.
