Memorial Acte, Pointe-a-Pitre

#1 of 14 in Museums in Guadeloupe
History Museum Museum
Learn about 15th and 19th century Caribbean history at Memorial Acte. Audioguides, short films, factual documents, and artifacts teach you about slavery and the indigenous population of the Caribbean. The design of the building features interlaced silver steel covering black granite with quartz chips. This represents the millions of lost souls clinging to a black box. No items are allowed inside the museum, so bring some change for the lockers to put your personal belongings in.
