Estate Whim Museum

History comes alive as you walk among the original early 18th century plantation buildings at Estate Whim Museum.

With its slave quarters, Great House, mill and factory complex, Whim is the only sugar plantation museum in the Virgin Islands. Each year, thousands visit the 12-acre site, where the restored 18th century buildings stand as a testament to the skills and labor of enslaved Africans and the hopes and dreams of Europeans seeking wealth in the "sugar islands" of the Caribbean.

The museum continues to actively collect and conserve artifacts pertinent to St. Croix's colonial and modern history. The stately Great House welcomes you with gracious guides waiting to tell you the stories of the house and plantation life. The fully restored windmill and sugar factory ruins are open for you to explore. You can see sugar cane growing nearby in one of the plantation gardens. The grounds are graced with tropical flowers, plants and trees.

Ongoing research unlocks the secrets of the plantation era of St. Croix and all its many ramifications. A rare book library and archives repository has been established on the property that facilitates the work of the Society and is open to the public for scholarly research.
