Really not worth going to. Windmills not used for over 100 years. Small exhibition of tools used for sugar cane production.

We really didn't get to tour Betty's Hope as it was mainly a stop for our picnic lunch on the longer island safari tour that day, but we did see the beautiful windmill and the excellent job of restoration that is being done. They have...More

Such a serene place to visit but our guide shared the dark history behind Betty's Hope - staff treated appallingly, wore clothes until they became rags, weren't even allowed Christmas Day off - many ended up taking their own lives as they saw this as...More

The little museum brings it all to life. Seeing where everything was and just how big it was, was amazing. The restored mill is very interesting. A peaceful, historic place and worth a visit. Free of charge but donations are appreciated.

This was a depressing site to visit (especially on vacation). You can see and feel the inhumane conditions that slaves were subjected to. The whole premise of "hope" is ironic. It was a sugar plantation based on greed and oppression. I was glad to leave.

It is cool that they have refurbished a sugar mill. Problem is that it is in the middle of nowhere so it takes a bit to get there and there is really not much other than what you see in your picture here.

This site gives you a good idea how life was on the island back in the early 1800's. Lot's of history here. Too bad more of these locations have not been properly restored for visitors!
