St. Martin’s only natural history museum is back and better than ever. Amuseum Naturalis is jumpstarting its 2017 season with holiday preview nights every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 4-8pm starting Tuesday, December 20th. As always, the museum is completely free and open to guests of all ages.
The Les Fruits de Mer association has done a complete refresh of the museum for the 2017 season. Popular attractions from last year, like the exhibits featuring St. Martin’s freshwater and cave ecosystems have been enhanced. New exhibits will be launching throughout the season, starting with Kingdom of the Night, an interactive experience that allows guests to orchestrate their own symphony using the sounds of St. Martin’s nocturnal animals.
In addition to the new exhibits, the holiday preview nights will feature new short nature documentaries in the Amuseum Natualis theater space. Created by Les Fruits de Mer, these documentaries take the viewer to some of the island’s most fascinating spots to meet some of the most intriguing creatures living here.
On the Amuseum Naturalis website, guests can learn more about the exhibits and see the team working to bring “New wonders every week!” to the museum. Local businesses and individuals are also encouraged to become Friends of the Amuseum by donating 100€ to fund exhibit materials, educational materials for kids and special events at the museum.
Amuseum Naturalis is open on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4-8pm. It is completely free for the public and created entirely by volunteers. Developed by Les Fruits de Mer, it is made possible by the support of Delta Petroleum and over a dozen local businesses and individuals who have become Friends of the Amuseum.
