This unusual building in Pointe-à-Pitre is a recent addition to the UNESCO Slave Route Project, begun in 1994. It's been called the Pompidou Center of the Caribbean because of its soaring, silver-latticed exterior. Inside, you'll find a variety of arresting exhibits—both historic and artistic—as well as research libraries. It's a place where you might want to linger for a few hours; luckily, there's ocean-view dining if you feel the need to refuel. The Morne Mémoire (Memory Hill) Park and seafront walk offer vistas that inspire contemplation.
