A visit to the oldest independent country in the history of the Caribbean is a must if you are a lover of everything history and art and there is no better place to immerse in all it has to offer than the Musée du Panthéon National Haïtien. The museum has a breathtaking and spectacular view and is identified more as a cultural centre of the country. Opened in 1983, the museum offers a peek into the cultural, social and political journey of Haiti with a dedicated section to slavery, national heroes and the Haitian Revolution. Some of its most popular items include the bell used to announce independence, the gun used by Henri Christophe to commit suicide, a bunch of torture instruments, and the anchor of Christopher Columbus’s ship, the Santa Maria.
