Pagerie Estate is where the Empress Josephine (Napoleon Bonaparte's wife) was born, and lived until she was 16. We toured the homestead museum and saw artefacts associated with Josephine and walked around the very picturesque gardens. Well worth the scenic drive to see.

It is a mini museum; all artefacts are displayed in a small room which was the former Kitchen (i believe). Interesting but not really impressive

We arrived about 20 minutes before a 4pm closing time – which seems ludicrous and aimed at the convenience of the employees rather than geared to the needs of visitors - and received such a discourteous 'welcome' from the staff, that we decided it was...More

Interesting history review. The museum has many unique exhibits including the bed that Josephine slept in.

This museum is small, but interesting. Our guide presented in both french and english, and did a very god job of it. If you don't read french, you may be disappointed, as everything legible is in french.

The guide covered a lot of history in a very short time, which was a little overwhelming. But she was very knowledgeable. French language only.

There are ruins of a sugar factory across the road, and a very modern ticket office, but the main attraction is a small building with antiques & collectibles from the era of Napoleon & Josephine. It was interesting to see her gloves, and commemorative lamps...More

Why is there no specific street address given for this attraction? It's a difficult neighborhood to navigate (especially if one does not speak French.) A street address that worked with Google maps or iMaps would be super helpful!

When you get off the ferry at Trois-Ilets there is a Tourist Department kiosk nearby, they may help u, they speak English. The plantation is a little too far to walk. We were short of time, so we took a taxi. The plantation... More
