The William Knibb Museum of Enslavement and Amelioration in the New World

FHR’s new museum will be housed in the Baptist Manse, former home of British emancipator William Knibb, and will continue Falmouth Heritage Renewal’s mission to preserve Jamaica’s significant history and rich cultural heritage. Become a charter member and get involved today!

      From the Museum Perspective, by Dr. Ivor C. Conolley:

       “The objective of the museum is to disseminate historical information to the general public to educate

       and inform through our Interpretive Center exhibits, educational programs, special events, educational       

       literature and other interpretive activities.”

       “This museum proposes to use dioramas and automated displays to depict a window of the enslaved

       society in Trelawny between 1770 and 1840 on to the present.”
