Lonely Planet review
This three-level municipal museum occupies an attractive 19th-century colonial building. The museum is dedicated to the renowned poet and Nobel laureate Alexis Leger (1887–1975), better known as St-John Perse. The house offers a glimpse of a period Creole home and displays on Perse’s life and work. Almost all of the exhibits are in French, but there are some newspaper illustrations and photographs from the city’s past that make the admission price worth it.
