  • This museum is interesting and the price of entry is low. But unfortunately this lack of audio guide or a few comments to make this visit more attractive. More information begin to date and the update of the data could be somewhat newer (latest data dating to before 2000).

  • Too expensive (€4) to read signs found on the internet. Some objects but without explanation and prohibition to take pictures.

  • Sugar cane museum. Has French and English descriptions. No photos allowed. Free entry.
  • "Interesting!" Together interesting including panels explaining perfectly manufacturing rum and the organisation of a home. Beautiful exhibits, many individual donations adding a touch of authenticity. A lot of reading on the panels that can make the difficult visit for young children except maybe through a guided tour ;)

  • Museum of MARTINIQUE, to with his old relics, locomotive steam and presses of the time. Heritage, which is a part of the memory of the island's sugar production and also a painful past.

  • Walk in the park that would deserve a little renovation lack of presentation panels in front of the trees

  • Very interesting place that informs on the history of the slave trade and the cane. Certainly rewarding to see!
