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

Interesting
The Regional Museum of History and Ethnography features a handsome villa set in a garden. The journey back in time continues inside the house, where a late-19C interior has been recreated to provide an insight into daily life and culture in Martinique at the time. The collection of furniture and West Indies dresses, made out of madras fabric and broché satin, called douillettes, is particularly noteworthy.
