Museums have historically been centers of research, education, and public outreach. St Martin/st Maarten cultural heritage has been preserved in the Museum on the road to Fort Louis, near the catholic church. Although it has been opened for many years, and contains rare and original artifacts from the first island’s inhabitants, the Arawak indians, too few people know about it and/or visit during opening hours, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm.
