Musee du Rhum, Sainte Rose
(2/5 based on 180 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. Take a look at our Sainte Rose vacation planner to schedule your visit to Musee du Rhum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Guided many explanations but you must love to read. Small film screened in a room to share on the history of the distillery and rum production. the upstairs room reserved for exhibitions of model ships, insects, animals and Caribbean traditions. If you want to buy rum in bulk, don't forget your can of 5L, it is cheaper than in the supermarket. You'll find rum distillery Reimonenq just behind the Museum and price are more interesting than in supermarkets. count €6 / adult for the visit.

  • We were very disappointed by the visit. It's cheap for a visit where you... fend. Not guided tour, just of the panels to read meles to objects used for the harvest and the transformation of sugar cane and a movie in free access. The tasting also is free. Bottles in a circle and once again no one to explain the different rum (it's a museum but also a distellerie!) Finally, to sum up, we visited 4 Distillery, and this is the one where we got nothing...

  • The Museum of rum is in the end only a small exhibition of the tools used at the time. They put you in front of a film, then you have access to a room where these tools are exposed to finish on a tasting. Far from being an essential and we did not understand why an exhibition on insects was proposed there...
