The Gardens of the MUPANAH

Here are some pictures marking the official opening of the Gardens of the Museum of Haitian National Pantheon (MUPANAH).

On June 19, 2015, the inauguration of the Gardens of the Museum of Haitian National Pantheon (MUPANAH) took place in the presence of the Directors General of the institutions of the Ministry of Culture, several senior state officials, diplomatic representatives and representatives of the various cultural institutions and museums of Haiti. 'MUPANAH' is a modern museum built mostly below the earth's surface where the conical central 'well' will bring light to illuminate the gold monument recreating the cannons and banners found on the national flag. Its unusual design reflects the style of Haiti's original Taíno inhabitants. Here the bodies of Toussaint Louverture, Dessalines, Christophe and Pétion are interred below and the names of famous independence heroes are marked on the surrounding walls. The first phase of this landscape area covers an area of around 10,000 square meters and includes a restaurant, museum shop, a play area for children, multipurpose room, benches, an amphitheater, bathrooms, an infirmary, and a service for schoolchildren vehicle.
