We did not take the guided tour so we were able to wonder around as we pleased and read and take photos etc. It was so informative and interesting. Love this museum. A lot to see!! It's $10US and well worth it.

While their topic is extremely important, the presentation is quite lacking. We did not opt for the guided tour, perhaps that might have improved our visit.

Impressive to see how this area has been rebuild and resurrected. Even though it is a hotel these days, worth walking around and taking a look at.

Highly recommended although not of the same level as government financed museums. Still, the many objects and information give a good idea of what the slave trade was and the impact on societies till today.
