Schoelcher Library#2 in Best Things To Do in Martinique
- 0.0Food Scene
Schoelcher Library in Fort-de-France should hold a spot on your travel itinerary for its history and ornate design, not for its books. The building was originally designed and built for an 1889 exposition in Paris before it was shipped to Martinique and reassembled along the west side of La Savane. It was named in honor of slavery abolitionist Victor Schoelcher.
Recent visitors said it's definitely worth a quick stop in to explore and learn about the history; others point out that the free Wi-Fi is an enticing reason to visit, as well.
The library is open Monday afternoons, all day Tuesday through Friday and on Saturday mornings. There is no admission fee.
