  • Missing lots of information about the true story of the development and processing of sugarcane. The groups that assembled for a guide, are numerous, most people do not learn that you talk about information points or stops. It is missing information since it started the cultivation of sugarcane in all their faces until they get the sugar. They talk only about panela. It would be good that they will prepare a demonstration of how was the actual process of crystallization of the sugar, so either through a video. As well as a sample of the production of panela is so small, but this gets more attention and the interest of people who visit the place. Since many are looking at the garden and not pay attention to the history of the Museum. The summary giving different sugar regions is basic but is acceptable. But one hopes that arriving at the valle del Cauca, which is of the regions producing more sugar per hectare at the global level, the explanation is more detailed and real. Since they show the farm, they should inform how it worked, there are many areas that do not explain that they used at that time, for example where is the café or shop. And other more areas which are closed but does not give information. Finally, it considered that much identity lack. It is a place visited by many international tourist and other regions of Colombia, and is supposed to process the cane gets several products, not only brown sugar and sugar, named the production of sweet but they do not give names or explained that they make (ingredients) for q EU tourists try them since they are unknown to many and are traditional in the region.

  • I wasn't expecting such a beautiful place. It uses reproduced models to demonstrate the history of sugar cane production in Colombia. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • Fall short with the theme of sugar cane. There is a sample of the first windmills and that's it. They do not explain the current processes
