Welcome to Amuseum Naturalis!



 

 

Amuseum Naturalis started out as St. Martin's first natural history museum, but it's becoming a whole lot more! As a pop-up museum in Grand Case for high seasons 2016 and 2017, we had over 10,000 visitors. Now, the first phase of the Amuseum is open in our new location! Come by to see us between 9am and noon, Tuesday through Saturday!

We're expanding our scope, telling stories about nature, heritage and culture in St. Martin. We're also adding community projects, like a native plants nursery and recording oral histories. The Amuseum will continue to be free for the public.

We encourage all to get involved. If you are on-island, come volunteer or share your ideas. If you are far away, consider joining Les Fruits de Mer, donating or becoming a Friend of the Amuseum.
