This gallery is more interactive than the rest of the museum. There is more to touch, and the language is more “story-like” so that it appeals to children. The text rails are low so that even young visitors can reach and read.
The ‘dress-up’ corner is a favourite place where children and young people can become among other characters, a Zouave soldier, an African prince, a mulatto girl with headgear and all the trimmings which ladies of the day wore.
Stories of the Amerindian past, the arrival of the British, the development of the sugar industry, and the social life of the island are revealed in the Children’s Gallery.
