  • A Museum a bit overwhelmed, engravings and photos are old and not necessarily in excellent condition. A museum that is not at the forefront of progress and information

  • Within our bus tour in Martinique (booked via Aida) we came in St. Pierre. After seeing the remains of the theatre and the police station (freely accessible and free of charge), it walked the few meters walk over in the Musée Franck A. Perret. This was in the proper only to a single large room. This is quite dark and there are all sorts of artifacts in which were found after the great earthquake of the 08.05.1902 in the devastated city. We us as a travel group only a good quarter of an hour is stopped, what but also fully coming are sufficient for this purpose was. A servant described the events to the accident briefly in English. Who but closer wants to deal with the topic, I suggest to find the question, well recherierte page at Wikipedia. There is clearly more / better information on the subject. A previous writer told me, that admission would 5 euro behavior is what I definitely don't pay (for us the price was included already in the travel). Also I could make my no rhyme for the photograph ban (which is monitored!)... A visit is in this, in the years lost room (which also somewhat musty smell), I can recommend so only conditionally.

  • Lots of information about what is tragically happened in 1902. Good explanations and an exciting movie. A remake!

  • A valiant effort with limited resources. A bit more light would help in some exhibits.
  • St.Pierre seems after 100 years has not really awake to have been kissed. The Museum is located above the promenade, the intercommunication is locked, boiling the temperature in the concrete Museum, so we ran our donation from the area after the construction. What a pity! The sea is wonderfully clean, the environment is fantastic.

  • Very disappointed with this museum which ought to be one point emblematic of St. Peter; dilapidated premises, cold home... Strongly the renovation of the whole.

  • Frank Perret Museum, located in the heart of the city of St. Peter, is devoted entirely to the eruption of Mount Pelée in May 8, 1902. It was created in 1933 by Frank Alvord Perret, U.S. vulcanologist, who had collected during its work and research many objects, photographs and documents of the time before and after the disaster. Really to see during your visit to St. Peter.
