Fodor's Expert Review Berkel Family Plantation
Also known as the Lynch Plantation Museum, the two one-room buildings are replicas of the Berkel family's homes; they were built in honor of the matriarch's 100th birthday. The plantation provides an interesting perspective of life on Statia a century ago, when residents lived off the land. The remarkable collection includes family pictures, eyeglasses, original furnishings, and farming and fishing implements. Call Ismael Berkel to arrange a private tour. Since it's on the northeast side of the island, you'll need a taxi or car to get here.
