Great example of colonial decadence. Superbly laid out with beautiful examples of the period. A must to visit

We spent about an hour leisurely touring the Romance Museum. The period furniture and decor presented what life for the privileged was like at that time in history. Certainly the visit was well worth it.

Out of all this was my favourite. Beware of having to pay to use your cameras. Expensive. I did not pay for this one, but wish I had. Beautiful furniture and surroundings. The opulence of the era

This is the home of a sugar plantation barron, from centuries past. Unfortunately, the furniture, paintings and other decorative items are not from the original home, but are from the period. It was fantastic to take a look back into the past. There are guides who will show you around and tell you where all the pieces and paintings are... More

Un-expected quantity of really beautiful objects d'art and furniture! Don't miss it. A look into pre-revolution life, at least for some.

The museum contains a collection of items that represent the time period and status of the Brunet family. The rooms have been well maintained; the decorative pieces are lovely. Of particular interest is the huge kitchen and the upstairs toilet.
