  • The location is superb, and we revived the La Rochelle of the 18th century. The exposed objects and paintings are beautiful and understanding relations between Europe, Africa and the new world, with all its atrocities and also his promises.

  • The Museum is not gigantic but imprisons a lot of history. It is done in a few hours. This museum is free for students on Sunday, I made a tour with my boyfriend. There are very beautiful works, everything is well explained, I loved.

  • Remarkable Museum in a beautiful mansion of the XVIII century. Beautiful collections of paintings, engravings, and furniture. The collection of clocks of the XVIII on the theme of slavery or of the noble savage is particularly noteworthy. My most interesting taste Museum of la Rochelle, fine arts is a ruin without a name...
