Regional Museum of History and Ethnography of Fort-de-France

Interesting
The Regional Museum of History and Ethnography features the discovery of a handsome colonial period house surrounded by a garden. The travel through time continues inside the house, which has recreated a late-19C interior, providing an insight into daily life and culture at the time in Martinique. The collection of furniture and West Indies dresses, made out of madras and broché satin, called douillettes, is more than noteworthy.
