  • It surprises the entry with the anti-slavery manifesto but inside we saw photos of genocidal and racists recognized worldwide on the same wall as Gandhi, and not a single month to Mandela, Soyinka and other important characters in the abolition of slavery and little reference to human rights. If you want to meet the Famila Da Silva go but do not think that there you will find a clear and historically grounded reference of the fight against slavery or anything you do not know about slaves.

  • Private museum, which seemed a bit too many things. More than one separate building. The facilities are to be found in motorcycles than cars, Martin Luther King Juniors, old radio, record players. All the so called nothing below tells the history of porto Novo and the traditional. The Museum sells a yhteislippua slave Museum, where a trip a couple of street corner but in practice, the President of the Museum, this one consists of a dark-skinned, monarchs and celebrities. Not child-friendly. Photography indoors is prohibited. Access to the child under 2eur. Tickets for both concerts 3.5 eur per person. A guide to getting around with at the time of the visit.
