Learn about 15th and 19th century Caribbean history at Memorial Acte. Audioguides, short films, factual documents, and artifacts teach you about slavery and the indigenous population of the Caribbean. The design of the building features interlaced silver steel covering black granite with quartz chips. This represents the millions of lost souls clinging to a black box. No items are allowed inside the museum, so bring some change for the lockers to put your personal belongings in.

Memorial Acte reviews
Spent a few hours here on our last day on the Islands, Really interesting Museum and the Personal electronic guide really helped too - the whole thing is a real Eye-Opener to Slavery and Trafficking..... more »
My wife and I had an opportunity to view this attention grabbing building while in the area and appreciated the opportunity. The site is within 15 minutes walk of the cruise terminal and can be seen..... more »
A powerful audio visual experience. Superb presentation of a very difficult subject. The background to early Guadeloupe and in particular a timeline of slavery. Well worth a visit, and don't rush, it deserves your time.
Amazing museum which focuses on history of slavery. French/English signage and well produced audio guide. Powerful exhibits and I would recommend for everyone.
