Exhibition

Price: 2,5€

The Museum offers guided tours of the temporary exhibition "Tromelin: The Island of Forgotten Slaves" on request, subject to availability, from Tuesday to Friday.

TROMELIN. The island of forgotten slaves

The exhibition tells the story of 80 Malagasy slaves from the island of Madagascar, who were abandoned in 1760 on an almost deserted islet in the Indian Ocean for fifteen years.

Turned into a maritime prison, they left there year after year a silent account of their anguish. A team of historians and archaeologists have tried to give them a voice and thus recover a hitherto unknown page of human history.
