Learn about the history of Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon, at Musee de la Pagerie. The quaint stone house, where Josephine spent the first 15 years of her life, has now been turned into a museum. Head inside to see the former family kitchen, which has now been converted into a dislpay about the empresses’ childhood. Find her wooden bed and other memorabilia, such as a rocking chair, glass vases, and pictures of the empress. Other areas of the property contain a selection of important items, such as the Bonaparte family chart, old sugarcane equipment, and love letters between herself and Napoleon.

    If you love history, Martinique or the Caribbean, feel free! Discover this Museum, small, but in an exceptionally beautiful setting! Courteous and friendly staff! You will be received by a guide (Dominique), who mastered his subject. Nice to listen to, because everything about his subject.

    The Museum provides information about the origin and life of the family Tascher de la Pagerie. Their daughter Joséphine is entered as the wife of Napoleon Bonaparte and Empress of France in the history. The exhibition itself, in the former kitchen building, is quite small. Therefore the participation in one of the free, but irregularly scheduled guided tours (mostly in French) is advisable to tell the Museum staff know much. Large, well-kept gardens.
