housed in a mansion built in the 19th Century
This museum, situated in the Rue de la Liberté, is housed in a mansion built in the 19th Century. The façade is a good example of the typical architecture of the city. It's three stories high, made of brick with multiple symmetrical facades and windows covered with white bars. On the top floor there is a large balcony with a wrought iron railing. It houses the Museum of pre-Columbian archeology and prehistory (before colonization) from the island of Martinique, which displays more than 2,000 pieces found in the excavations that have taken place on the island since the year 4000. C until the arrival of the first settlers.
