Rather small museum, but gives nice impression of 18.century - 1950s living in the island. Also some Swedish heritage, which I interesting as also our nation was ruled by Swedes some time of that period. Free entrance.

Recently restored, very nice house from the Swedish period, around 1790. We were lucky to see an exhibition of Jasper Jones and on the other half of the museum the exhibition of old st barth history.

This small museum gives the visitor an excellent idea of the culture and history of a tiny island. The location is a little out of the way but well worth the effort. Try to visit on your next visit to St. Bart's.
