Fodor's Expert Review Kreol West Indies
This fascinating museum, in a renovated bungalow, houses information and graphics on Guadeloupe's earliest inhabitants, as well as some pirate artifacts. Rooms are furnished with antiques and collectibles that depict island life during various eras, up through the 1950s. Devoted to Creole culture, the museum also doubles as an art gallery, with attractive contemporary paintings by island artists. This labor of love displays furnishings and descriptives owned by a French "culture lover" Vincent Nicaudie. The gift shop carries quality Marie-Galante logoized T-shirts and caps, beachwear, and island food products. Also, this is a Wi-Fi hot spot.
