New World Museum

Interesting
The Hôtel Fleuriau is the perfect setting for this museum dedicated to the close relationship enjoyed between La Rochelle and the Americas since the Renaissance. Many La Rochelle ship owners became very rich trading with Canada, Louisiana and the Caribbean. Exhibits include old maps, paintings, Indian objects and documents relating to slavery.
