Welcome to Amuseum Naturalis!

Amuseum Naturalis was St. Martin's first natural history museum, but it is about to become a whole lot more! During two years in Grand Case, where we had over 10,000 visitors. Now, the Amuseum is busy preparing our new location for a 2018 launch.

We are currently offering a summer preview of the Amuseum. Come by to see us between 9am and noon, Monday through Friday during July and August of 2018!

We will be expanding our scope, telling stories about nature, heritage and culture in St. Martin. We're also adding community projects, like a native plants nursery. 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.
