“The big crowds visiting the museum during Mardis de Grand Case were fantastic,” commented Les Fruits de Mer President Jenn Yerkes, “We’re also excited to have the museum open during a quieter period to share it with local residents, especially kids.”

The museum currently features ten exhibits on a variety of natural history subjects, from freshwater ecosystems to invasive species. A special exhibit, Women, People of Color and the Making of Natural History in the Caribbean will be on display through June. A variety of short, locally-produced nature documentaries will be shown in the museum theater.

Visitors are encouraged to make their own contributions during their visit to the museum. Whenever the museum is open, visitors can stop by to tell a story about their experience of St. Martin—history, traditional life, recollections about wildlife or any topic—which will be recorded as part of a project to document life on St. Martin.

The public is invited to visit Amuseum Naturalis and explore the exhibits Sunday and Thursday evenings from 4-8pm throughout the month of June. Amuseum Naturalis is located at 96 Boulevard de Grand Case, and was created by the non-profit association Les Fruits de Mer and sponsored by Delta Petroleum.
