Arriving at Martinique from a cruise ship we discovered that the only economical way totravelt from Port De France to Les Trois Ilets was by ferry, which proved to be very easy and inexpensive. We then hired a taxi to take us to Musee de...More

La Pagerie was interesting, but has the potential to be much more. Be aware, there is not much remaining of the plantation. Some people on the tour were disappointed, because they were expecting to see Empress Josephine’s home, of which only the foundation remains. The...More

We were underwhelmed by this museum. The tour itself lasted about 20-30 minutes and was moderately interesting. The museum was focused on Napoleonic history and Josephine's life, and is primarily located in the downstairs of the plantation house (the upstairs is not accessible). The ruins...More

The museum consists of a new reception area with OK toilets, the ruined foundation of the main plantation house, and the kitchen, which has A/C and several rather uninteresting exhibits of the Empress and Napoleon. Tours in French and English are available — mostly French....More

Nice place to visit. Although it was much smaller than I had expected. Our guide spoke English but was hard to understand because she had a heavy French accent. It was a nice little place to visit if you like history, but the museum is...More

Pagerie Estate is where the Empress Josephine (Napoleon Bonaparte's wife) was born, and lived until she was 16. We toured the homestead museum and saw artefacts associated with Josephine and walked around the very picturesque gardens. Well worth the scenic drive to see.

It is a mini museum; all artefacts are displayed in a small room which was the former Kitchen (i believe). Interesting but not really impressive

We arrived about 20 minutes before a 4pm closing time – which seems ludicrous and aimed at the convenience of the employees rather than geared to the needs of visitors - and received such a discourteous 'welcome' from the staff, that we decided it was...More

Interesting history review. The museum has many unique exhibits including the bed that Josephine slept in.
