French Heritage Museum
The French Heritage Museum is housed in two small houses; both are fine examples of traditional vernacular architecture once common in Frenchtown; and to some degree still in use today. Look around the hills in Frenchtown and you will see an assortment of traditional houses mixed in with more recent designs. Step inside the museum and view century old artifacts like fishing nets, accordions, mahogany furniture, pottery, tools and photographs that tell the story of the French-Caribbean people of St. Barthelemy that settled in St. Thomas and of their descendants. The museum is run by volunteers and is typically open Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm, and also by appointment. For more information call: (340) 714-2583.
