As a historian, I am skeptical of many museums that offer a pat narrative of a complex topic. This one didn't. Overall, I was very impressed and recommend a visit. They don't have a ton of artifacts, but they use what they have to good...More

This is in the Albert Dock area and tells the sorry story about slavery. It is a shame it is not open later like other places in the area as closes at 5-00PM

i would say if you look around the museum and read and listen to the recordings, about 3 hours there is a tea room on the top floor
