Welcome to Amuseum Naturalis!


Amuseum Naturalis is a free museum of the nature and heritage of St. Martin. Come share what makes this island so special!

Discover the animals that live in St. Martin and nowhere else in the world, and the traditional building techniques that give local homes their unique charm. Take a botanic walk to learn how native trees have adapted to life on St. Martin, and enjoy three beautiful viewpoints. Find out how African and Amerindian heritage comes together in Caribbean farming and bush medicine traditions.

Amuseum Naturalis is located at the historic Old House in French Quarter. We are open for self-guided visits during daytime hours.

Please 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.
