This a unique museum experience that offers an interesting and indepth background on the slave trade. The museum was much larger than I thought. The artifacts and history are powerful. There is one building that depicts most realistically, 'what' the slaves endured. I found this portion very heart wrenching.
The tour is well worth the $10 cover charge. (the fee also includes a free cup of coffee at their cute little outside restaurant) You can wander the grounds on a self guided tour or choose to have a guide. I recommend a guide. They are VERY knowledgeable and there is way too much to see to be able to figure it all out on your own.
I am posting some of the videos (4) we took on our tour. Today I will post 2 of them and the other 2 tomorrow.
**Note - the tour guides can be a little difficult to understand, due to their accents while speaking in English, but after listening for a while the accent becomes less detectable. To me, the accents actually add to the experience making it more real.
