Located in the enclosure of an 18th century sugar plantation, the Ogier-Fombrun Museum tells the story of Haiti dating from the pre-Columbian period to the revolutionary period, when Haiti became the first black republic in the world. The museum is thus a place of memory in tribute to the struggle of the Haitian people for the abolition of slavery and for its independence.
Enjoy a visit to the recently renovated Ogier-Fombrun Museum, which houses an extensive collection of authentic artifacts and works of art revealing the treasures of Haiti's history.
The Ogier-Fombrun museum will welcome you with stories dating from the pre-Columbian Indian era to the colonial era of 1794, while Haiti was the largest sugar producer in the Caribbean.
The property is an authentic sugarcane plantation whose ruins have been totally recovered by the work of architect Gérard Fombrun for more than 35 years of personal involvement. The authentic stone aqueduct that still exists, continues to run water to a gigantic 20-foot wooden wheel that was used to extract the juice of the cane.
