History Museum
Experience a recreated "slave village" at La Savane des Esclaves. The settlement was created in 2000 by Gilbert Larose, a local who wanted to showcase the lives of his ancestors--plantation workers who fled to freedom and lived off the land. You'll step back in time as you explore this replica 19th-century village, where each structure is dedicated to a traditional local custom. In addition to traditional huts and artifacts, look for an old-fashioned Creole garden, which is tended without fertilizer or pesticide and is filled with herbs, medicinal plants, and fruit. Make La Savane des Esclaves part of your personalized Trois-Ilets itinerary using our Trois-Ilets travel itinerary planner.

  • Very good tour, however with young children (3 years and 1/2) is a little long. This is an informative visit, historian and cultural.

  • Well restored site, suitable for people with reduced mobility, I also borrowed it and yesterday inaugurated 08/04/17 with my chair. Gilbert's explanations are very interesting, is a passionate man who gives us the history of the first habtitants of the island up to slavery. Site must see!

  • You can see the houses that freed slaves built for themselves. There is a guided tour also but only in French, however you get a booklet with English translation. Apart from. The houses they also show you different tropical trees and herbs on a nice garden.
  • A museum open for 12 years, which is built gradually through its founder Mr. Larose, his entourage, his family. He welcomed the young guide including the narration of the texts of this museum us Captivate from the first words. The Museum is certainly now a bit small and grows. We feel the development projects: bravo for sharing this historic, so that this memory endures. Thank you.

  • It's a really interesting place, where we have a concrete image of the story. The reception is very good and very interesting tour. We feel that there is work and a desire to provide history and knowledge.
