It's one of the memorable place to visit so that you can be aware of Slave Trade History. Actual it's sad, but also, it's good to know how slave trade was horrible and even still exist in some of the area Worldwide. There is a Guider to show you around from point one to the end, very cool and I will share some pictures.

A well-done grouping of sites to see, including two of the original slave chambers underground, a slave monument, a museum-style walkthrough to learn about the slave trade, and the Anglican Church. There is an entrance fee that comes with a guide. Our guide was informative and pleasant.

I found this place very interesting regarding the slave trade. It was very informative and also interesting to know how human being can do things to other human being without really understanding the true effects on other human beings and thinking that it was ok to do so.

Well documented history of the slave market. It was so emotional. This is a place you need to visit to appreciate freedom.

Actually it’s a place to go to read. You can find the info in Wikipedia. It would be nice to offer something to see.

Too much people... Information about slaves was very good and nice to know.

A must see in Zanzibar! This is a small museum about the old slave market in Zanzibar where Africans were captured or sold from the mainland, made the hard journey to Zanzibar to be auction off to the highest bidder. The underground slave chamber gave me goosebumps because the slaves were held there up to 3 days before being auctioned. There’s a small memorial to commemorate the slaves at the back of building along with a church. Entrance fee for foreigners is 11,500 tsh or $5.

For a reasonable price, a knowledgeable guide showed us around the slave chambers and Anglican church.

Very beautiful place with rich history here. The next time you visit Zanzibar this is a place to see. People are friendly and the tour guides are superb. The stone Town (where Slave Chambers is located) is not so big and one can walk to almost all places here including restaurants.

A good place to understand what slaves went through as they where being transferred to various places

Good place to visit while in Stone Town. It explains in detail the history of slave business happening in Zanzibar. Visit with guided tour is included in the price

Sobering and in my opinion the best museum in Zanzibar. A guide will try to attach themselves to you and naturally want a tip at the end, in our experience they didn't add much, other than pointing you in the right direction. You initally have a look at the church built on top of the slave post, then the Chambers, and finally a museum with very interesting history which progresses right from the beginnings of slavery right up until modern day slavery.

A very powerful experience with friendly and helpful tour guides. Cheap and well worth the visit!

As a part of the stone town tour, visiting the slave chambers was deeply harrowing. Learning of the awful conditions and getting to see them yourself from such a privileged position was very grounding. The stories of liberation but also the continuation of slavery into the modern day has encouraged me to stay vigilant and was incredibly insightful. As a health and safety note, there are steps, low ceilings and cramped conditions below ground level

This is a great museum and a must visit if you are on the island! Displays written in English take you through the history of slavery and abolition in the Zanzibar region. It also points out slavery as it exists around the world today. There are great photos and maps with lots of information on the local tribes involvement, Sultans, and local wealthy traders. A sad history the world was involved in but is important to know..the cost was 11,500 tsh per visitor and you are also able to have a guide for tips who speaks almost any language you request. Only downside I wish we could have seen more of the building, or there was more than just written information but still very interesting.
