This is a rather small museum, with exhibits on life in Fort-de-France in the 19th and early 20th centuries. However, there is no English information whatever, so unless you can read French, you're apt to be unsatisfied and 4 euros poorer.

The house is cute and the name is grand--you expect a good history lesson. But little is made of this opportunity. The whole first floor was taken up by a temporary exhibition about football (soccer) in Martinique. Great for those particular fans! The second floor...More

Two floors, one containing historical information presented by way of paintings/etchings/documents and the second showing rooms that might have been in the homes of local residents in the past. French-speaking guides, though, who were not bilingual, when we visited as part of a tour group....More
