About these ratings

The Estate Whim Plantation Museum chronicles the 18th century life of Cruzans, especially those involved in the production of sugar cane. You can tour the great house of this Frederiksted museum and stroll through the windmill and bath house.

St. Croix also has an Estate Mount Washington Plantation (a private residence that once was a sugar cane plantation), but of the two, travelers say the Whim is a richer, more enjoyable tour. You'll have to see yourself around Mount Washington, whereas the Whim has great tour guides on site who are full of facts concerning the island's sugar cane production and the lives of Cruzan slaves. In the winter you can visit the Estate Whim for its Candlelight Concert Series, an outdoor concert held on the grounds of the former plantation. The site also hosts wine tastings periodically.

You can visit the Estate Whim Plantation Museum Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission costs $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 7 to 12. For more information, check out the museum's website.
