Interpretation Center Paul Gauguin

Famed French artist Paul Gauguin lived on Martinique for five months, to study and paint his surroundings. Martinique honors Gauguin's efforts at the Interpretation Center Paul Gauguin (formerly the Musee Gauguin). The front gallery features his original works, and throughout the rest of the museum guests will find exhibits detailing his life on the island. Prints are available for purchase in the guest shop.

This museum dispenses to out-of-towners a new glimpse about the way the country's people feel about the subject matter. Like a variety of other museums you'll come across, Interpretation Center Paul Gauguin is home to mainly permanent exhibitions, including the museum's most talked-about exhibits.
