Koto is a a kind of subcultural fashion worn by town-dwelling creole women, which evolved from before the abolition and is still worn by some today. The elaborately folded headscarves are most well-known, as they were used to convey (secret) messages to those in the loop. Anything from celebrating a birthday to an invitation to 'meet me at the corner' ;)
I visited this little museum by myself and was treated to an hour and a half of stories and explanations by the founder's husband (?). The collection is mainly made up of mannequins wearing the different styles, but other objects and pictures relating to women's lives add to the stories too.
They ask a mere 10SRD (!) for a visit, which illustrates the noble intentions of the founders: simply to tell the stories and conserve their pieces for future generations.
If you plan to visit, you can (but aren't obligated to) call ahead, so they can make more time for you. Because of the small size of the exhibition space, a group larger than maybe 12 would probably be too crowded.
The museum is south of the centre in a suburban area. I took a cab there and the owner called one for me for the return journey, no problem.
