In the central hall, airy and lit by bays whose defence against sun and rain was ensured, according to the Colony's customs, by a series of horizontal awnings, were presented the woods and the various products of local work.

Two wings flanked the hall.

In one of them, a diorama highlighted the tourist attractions and the various sources of wealth of the island.

The other was a reconstruction of a Guadeloupean interior with a lace maker and a basket maker on the veranda.
