The museum Schœlcher is a museum located in Guadeloupe in the old quarter of Pointe-à-Pitre, 24 rue Peynier. It houses a collection of objects that belonged to the journalist and the French politician Victor Schoelcher who was the defender of the definitive abolition of slavery in France.
The building was built in 1883 to house the collection of sculptures (Roman and Egyptian) and objects (porcelain) which Victor Schœlcher donated to the General Council of Guadeloupe. The collection was completed in 1885 by some deposits of the Louvre Museum, and the museum was inaugurated on July 21, 1886. Since then, the collections have been enriched by objects related to slavery and the slave trade.
The building is partially listed as a historic monument on August 17, 1979
