Guadaloupe Slavery Museum

The Memorial ACTe slavery museum opened on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe almost a year ago.  There are six sections following the history of slavery, from times of pre-slavery in the New World to post-abolition today. Included in the facility are two restaurants, room for temporary exhibitions and a memorial park.

It is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 9 to 8 on Friday and Saturday and 10 to 6 on Sunday. Entry fee is 15 Euros and audio tours are available in English, French, Spanish and Creole.
