The setting is great, the garden and the parking are well maintained. The guides were very helpful and spoke French and English. Interesting historical facts about Napoleon's time.

I'm French and my husband is English. So, it hasn't been really easy in Martinique as lots of activities are not available in English! This one is and the Lady was really nice. I notice that the staff usually in Martinique look unfriendly but as soon as you smile, the ice is broken :)

Regarding the attraction itself, it's a bit expensive but worth it.We learn a lot in 1/2 hour of the French/Martinique history! Thanks for that :)

This Museum, dedicated to the home site and remains of the birthplace of Josephine, best known as the wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, is mostly in ruins (the sugar mill) and a period building which houses photos of the two. It can best be described as "interesting" but of interest to the people of Martinique. I could not recommend that one journey here just to see the site but if you are on Martinique for other purposes, and have an interest in Josephone, this site could be of interest to you.

It's the birthplace of Josephine, Napoleon's first wife. One ruin can be visited from the parking lot and the one intact building is not worth the price of admission. It's sufficient to view it from afar and read about it from any free tourist pamphlet.
