First off, this is also known as the Wall House Museum. It's not the best museum that you will see, but it's nice. It has a standard exhibit that talks a bit about the building itself, which went through an impressive renovation about 20 years ago, as well as the history of the island.

This small museum is called the wall museum, the musee territorial, the history museum, and on the sign Bibliotheque Historique.

Recently restored, very nice house from the Swedish period, around 1790. We were lucky to see an exhibition of Jasper Jones and on the other half of the museum the exhibition of old st barth history.

This small museum gives the visitor an excellent idea of the culture and history of a tiny island. The location is a little out of the way but well worth the effort. Try to visit on your next visit to St. Bart's.
