Fodor's Expert Review Pompey Museum

Nassau Historical Fodor's Choice

The building, where slave auctions were held in the 1700s, is named for a rebel slave who lived on the Family Island of Exuma in 1830. The structure and historic artifacts inside were destroyed by fire in December 2011, but have been painstakingly re-created and new exhibits have been acquired and produced. Exhibits focus on the issues of slavery and emancipation and highlight the works of local artists. A knowledgeable, enthusiastic young staff is on hand to answer questions.
