This small museum is worth a half hour visit. From its parking lot, you can have a nice view of the volcano, Mount Pelee'. The museum offers interesting information and photographs of the eruption of the volcano that destroyed Saint Pierre in1907. The personnel are very hospitable.

Pelee eruption, volcanoes, earthquakes, and plate tectonics - a sort of miniature geology class. It also had some display cases with relics of the volcanic eruption. This museum is worth... More
