Discover The Edgar-Clerc museum The islands of Guadeloupe

Created at the beginning of the 80s near the town of Moule, the Edgar Clerc museum is named after the archaeologist who donated his collections to it. Two big rooms show small talismans, skull reconstructions and potteries, dating back to Arawaks and Caribbean civilisations. The museum also has temporary exhibitions. It gives you a quick idea of who the first inhabitants on the island were.
