The basics

The site consists of a museum with indoor exhibits and a village where structures of a typical plantation, such as a plantation store, manager’s office, bathhouse, and infirmary, can be found, along with houses of different ethnic groups complete with furnishings and personal artifacts. There’s also a garden with unique plants that workers brought from their native lands. Although you can explore the site on your own, you’ll gain more out of the experience on a guided tour, as many guides have a personal connection to the plantation and offer stories and insights that you won’t learn otherwise.
