  • Small yet integral and educational museum. This place makes you travel way back in time and trough different rooms/time periods it brings you to nowadays. The owners/curators provided additional explanations and stories. Very pleasat visit, merci!
  • An excellent and unique museum experience in Le Gosier. My partner and I came late in the evening and had the entire museum to ourselves.The outside architecture is a lovely art deco and colorful. We were warmly greeted by Madame Camelia herself. She was extremely helpful and informative throughout the visit to the museum which ended in a video summery in the museum's peaceful fruit and medicinal garden, next to their hand made Casa Creole. Madame Camelia really knows her stuff, and I'd advise to ask her as many questions as possible. It was very impressive to see how she and her team were able to collect all of the clothing items, costumes, memorabilia and photos. Everything was placed chronologically and all ethnic cultures which create the Creole Guadeloupe culture, I felt were presented well. The museum kept well to the themes of traditional costumes and culture in Guadeloupe specifically. I would go back even just to visit her and her husband to say hello! Note: It's kid/family friendly and be sure to bring cash upon entry.
