Not being able to take pictures is not something of this century... the museum is ok but not overly exciting. Some displays were not working. The staff was not welcoming. I still rate it a 2 because of a couple of nice old equipment.

My favorite museum near Les Trois Ilets covered all aspects of rum manufacture, sugar processing, and history of the workers back then.

Through photographs and documents the role of sugar cane in the development of the island is documented. It could have been named the Museum of Slavery. Issues of prior colonialism and slavery in Martinique and Guadeloupe have not be resolved .
