Musee du Rhum, Sainte Rose
(2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is very much a "universal Museum", with the Museum of rum first. A video shows you tut process of sugarcane to the most sophisticated rums. There is also: an exhibition of butterflies and insects, models of tall ships and crafts & trades scenes. Too bad the photos are prohibited. Tasting of rum at the end of the visit. Good signage to get on this site.

  • Difficult to get an idea about the rum manufacturing and its history after the visit. On the other hand, a collection of insects and some models of boat... Entry to a € 10, it's expensive!

  • Museum on several floors. On the ground floor, all related to the manufacture of rum and sugar cane. On the 2nd floor, a magnificent Gallery of insects, with rare species. And an exhibition of the different types of boats and Creole items. The smaller, the tasting of different rums to the end and cheaper than in supermarkets bottles. An essential step!
