History comes alive as you walk among the original early 18th century plantation buildings on the 12 acres of Whim Museum. The stately greathouse - a unique architectural example built with rounded ends and using stone, brick, and coral - 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.
Whim is the oldest sugar plantation museum in the Virgin Islands. Its purpose is to increase the understanding of a colonial sugar plantation to both island residents and visitors. Exhibits and guided tours are designed to interpret the economics of a plantation, explain the procedures used in the cultivation and processing of sugar, and describe the everyday life of the people who lived and worked there
