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.

Most out-of-towners think that it is necessary to review as much with respect to the history and culture of the country they are visiting as is achievable, and this attraction supplies that possibility. Leading the bounty of displays at Interpretation Center Paul Gauguin, out-of-towners will note a grouping of permanent exhibits. These are this institution's perennial expositions.
