‪I really hate to write a less than glowing review about a small museum that is trying to share the history of a lovely place like St. Maarten/St. Martin but the rudeness of the staff here makes it hard. The museum is small and free, but they have a collection box as you exit that you can place donations in. My mom and I really appreciated the fact that the museum existed, and wanted to support them but neither of us had any bills (cash tips are BIG here and we had been on island for almost a week). What I did have was about $4 of quarters, along with a few other coins. I dug a handful out and placed it in the donation box. As I was digging around for the rest, the docent, who was in the middle of a conversation with someone else on the other side of the room, walked over and started yelling at us about how they didn't want our "useless" coins (apparently they couldn't take them to the bank?) and demanded dollars instead. I tried to explain to her that I appreciated the museum but literally did not have any cash side from the coins. She opened the donation box, gave a disgusted look at the coins and then told us to give dollars and sign the guestbook. No worries at all if you can't use coins, but there are much better ways to let people know if coins are an issue...‬

‪Ventured off the cruise ship, with low expectations of such a heavily tourist dependent stop. We were one of three ships, so we didn't hold out much hope. We found this by accident, as it doesn't appear to feature on any tourist map. Tucked away at 7 Frontstreet, this unassuming building had the most interesting and enthusiastically curated collection of artefacts and information upstairs. Absolutely stuffed to the gunnels with an eclectic range of items, arranged in a number of glass cases, but also just displayed without any protection. From true archaeological finds,the history of the island, displays of shells and flora, a colourful history of the arawak people to a collection of old typewriters!
There was no charge but a donation box and a visitors book, which the lovely lady manning the desk, was very keen for us to sign. The "gift shop" consisted of a few postcards and other much more genuine souvenirs if you felt inclined, but absolutely no pressure. Very refreshing! ‬

‪When visiting a new place, the first thing you should do is learn about the culture and why things are the way they are. If that's not the case, you might come across as another ignorant tourist the locals need to tolerate -- or at best, you'll notice things are different than back home but it will all seem random.

So when visiting St Martin, head to the museum in Philipsburg. Here you'll find the history of the island laid out before you, from the first human colonists around 2000 years ago to the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles in 2010. There's a display of how the island formed from volcanic activity and uplifted calcium-rich sea deposits, starting 50 million years ago. You'll find examples of tools, artwork, and a collection of pottery shards from the Arawak-speaking indigenous Saladoid people dating as far back as 500 AD. There are also replica carvings from the Taíno people from around 1300 AD. Apparently these people were no longer on the island by the time Christopher Columbus found the island in the end of the 15th century.

The museum shows how the French and Dutch colonists ended up splitting the island in the 17th century -- with global empires fighting for control of the island -- and at that time began importing African slaves to work on the sugarcane plantations and salt ponds. There is a section about the abolition of slavery across the island in the mid-19th century, and how the salt and sugar economy collapsed in the aftermath. You'll also see a display about the 1801 shipwreck of the frigate HMS Proselyte, from a time when both the ship and Sint Maarten had shifted from Dutch to British control.

We got a very in-depth review of the sad state of St Martin's preservation of historical sites by a docent named Jean-Marc, who despite his young age has taken documenting the destruction of the ruins very seriously. He discussed how 17th century forts and 18th century ruins of mills and factories are in danger of being wiped out by new developments that cater to tourists. For example, the 18th century ruins of a synagogue for Jewish exiles from the Spanish Inquisition is now the Guavaberry Rum shop.

We came away feeling like Jean-Marc was standing before the tattered remnants of St Martin's history -- and therefore the link to its culture -- in the face of a tsunami of new economic developments. I think this is crucial understanding for all visitors to the island. Rather than ignorantly sipping mai tais or piña coladas at your resort, you should try to learn why this tiny island has Dutch and French sides, why there is this Creole culture of lolos with amazing spices, and why there are political billboards all over Sint Maarten.‬

‪This is a self guided tour museum. It covers from pre-history original inhabitants up to the 20th century. If you want to learn about the islands history you should stop here. It is free and accepts donations too. Make sure to stop by and support them!‬

‪As a local historian myself I try to visit local history museums in my travels. This one was exceptional with lots of local information. Especially liked display boards about hurricanes and salt industry. Very nice staff person at the desk.‬

‪We wondered in as we were shopping and checking out the boardwalk, Front Street and nearby areas. Easy to miss little place, tucked away in a shady spot. Very welcoming people at the desk. Lots of artifacts and history about the island and its people, culture, language. It’s a free, self-guided tour. Reminded me of snooping through my grandparents attic full of antiques. It will take maybe 20 minutes, more if you are a history buff, but worth a stop.‬

‪This lovely little museum is situated in a side street and there was no charge to enter and have a look around. Donations are very welcome though. Very friendly staff and well worth a visit. The museum itself is situated on the first floor and has a good general history of the island and some interesting exhibits to look at. Doesn't take long to look around so well worth a quick visit.‬

‪フィリップスバーグの中心地にある博物館です。建物の前には大砲などもありました。平日のお昼頃でしたが閉まっていました。ガイドツアーと思しきグループも、ガイドさんが扉の前で説明をしていました。旅客船が寄港していない日だからでしょうか、開館時間の情報はあまりあてにならないようです。‬

‪There is no admission fee, but you are welcome to leave a donation, of course.

It's a very small museum, but it represents an admirable ambition among volunteers to provide glimpses of history, geology, marine biology, anthropology, and so on.

Signage is in English only, and very succinct.
