  • A good place to discover this fruit. After a small museum about the history and life of the banana, and a tasting, we leave to the discovery of a conservatory planting with hundreds of banana trees of different species. A nice ride.

  • The visit to this Museum takes place in 2 times, first covered with many panels, very rewarding but a bit long to read, and a tasting. Then a visit to the outside where we discover different kinds of bananas. The course is pleasant and the road ahead is full of different kinds of plants and flowers but with the heat some have not dared to venture there.

  • Great little museum and park. Spent about an hour or two here. Lot of great information about bananas and the industry and the ability to see many different varieties.
  • After a small museum with explains the plants, its history and export you get to taste different types of bananas and you go to a big park full of banana palms. In the park there are also Cocoa and coffee trees.
  • Here you can find interesting infos about Bananas. You will get infos about the fruit, where it comes from and what you can do with it. At the beginning you can also taste some of the bananas that are harvested nearby. Later you can go around the plantage to see many kinds of banana trees.
  • It could be replaced by a book: too much reading for a museum.
  • We were left to visit this museum but, on the road, we stopped on a banana farm and present workers have spoken us of their job and everything which turns banana goshawks for nearly an hour. At the Museum we had more interest to pay to hear the same thing. So we just do a little walk outside before returning. That said, the environment is nice.
