5 Min by car from the Cruise Port. The Frenchtown Heritage Museum is housed in two small buildings, both beautiful examples of traditional architecture once common in Frenchtown, and largely still in use today. Enter the museum and admire artifacts dating back 400 years ago that residents donated such as fishing nets, accordions, mahogany furniture, pottery, tools and photographs. They tell the story of the Franco-Caribbean people of St. Barthelemy who settled in St. Thomas and their descendants. The museum also records the genealogies of indigenous families.
