Musee du Rhum, Sainte Rose

3.0
#2 of 17 in Museums in Guadeloupe
Discover the soul of Guadeloupe through art and the tradition of rum-making at Musee du Rhum, covering 300 years of history. A video shot at the museum's distillery walks you through the process of rum-manufacturing; later, you'll have the chance to sample the high-quality product. Walk through the rest of the museum's idiosyncratic collection, which includes a gallery of 180 cases of insects, 40 models of tall ships, and a sand table representing a map of Guadeloupe. This quaint, quirky attraction appeals to your inner historian and your inner hedonist in equal measure.

  • This film is interesting and well explained, but a guided tour showing us in the work done on the cane plant to get the rum (as in Martinique) would have been more "talky" collection of insects is very beautiful but nothing to do with rum!

  • An interesting Museum, history. Well maintained garden in front of the entrance. In addition, the store where you can purchase manufactured here rum, punch and other small gadgets. You can also make the tasting. Recommend.

  • I'd rather have a guided tour with commentary and explanations. The reading of signs is less user-friendly. Insects and boats have nothing to do with the rum.

  • Nice little musee, and great Rhum as they let you taste with the tour. Enjoy Oui oui
  • Well worth an hour or so of your time. A perfect mix of interest, education, alcohol, insects and boats.
  • Museum very interesting both for the history of the cane sugar for the collection of insects and butterflies. Exhibition also of old stills and other equipment for refining the cane and rum-making.

  • If you want to lose your time and money in this museum Nick révisioniste of the slavery era, which glorifies this misplaced sociopath genocidal and Christophe Colomb rapist all by these masters of cruel plantations without ever giving of praise historical context for visitors to the Museum, look no further you are in the right place! Not a single mention of the word "slave" during the visit. You grant them rather revisionist nickname laundering "cane workers". In an outdated video which seems to have been produced in the 1980s, we can y ya of the whoppers such as ".. .when the cane workers made their first arrivals in Guadeloupe.." on a card reads: ".." When Christophe Colomb discovered the new world..." Also reads very hard period for these poor settlers who were greeted by the hostility of the native peoples. You see the style? the worst experience I have had in Guadeloupe. Say that the family Reimonenq, proud descendants of settlers, make millions on the backs of these men and women and children black slaves who built this company with their sweat, their blood and their lives. What a shame. No their not give money.
