  • It leaves a very good intention, the lady who greets us is very nice but the Museum in him even remained in its own juice since decades ago. It's small, not very well explained in the windows. It's a shame because this gives a good idea of the cataclysm and the city before and after the eruption. Frankly, the city of St. Pierre which reborn from its ashes slowly deserves better than this Museum and little explanation in the ruins to visit.

  • The idea is good, the St. Peter of before the eruption presented right with photographs, drawings and explanations allowing us to realize the reputation of this city in the nineteenth century; then a second half post eruption with found objects, testimonials etc. BUT! This would need a good shot of nine! The brightness is horrible, it is difficult to decipher the texts themselves passed over the years. Most of the objects found are not captioned... it's a shame! For € 5 entry was quick turn unfortunately!

  • 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.
