Must See Pompey Museum of Slavery & Emancipation

Located a four-minute drive and six-minute walk from The Port is historical Vendue House, home of the Pompey Museum of Slavery & Emancipation. Known formally as “The Bourse”, Vendue House was built sometime prior to 1769 as a marketplace and continued to be utilized until the late 1800s. Goods, commodities and enslaved Africans were sold at Vendue House in the 18th and 19th centuries. Named after a courageous slave, Pompey, the museum was formed in 1992 and is an important piece of Bahamian history.
