  • Sugar cane museum. Has French and English descriptions. No photos allowed. Free entry.
  • A small museum around the exploitation of cane and repercussions on the island of the. Martinique. We can quickly make the tour but we really care if a good hour and a half pr made the turn between the various panels and point audio listening. Too bad it does not have a point of sale or a stand of cane for example juice. Note that it is located next to a very nice hike!

  • I thought to visit a museum where the sugar cane would explain in far and wide. Nothing at all. It was the 20 panels to read about slavery and the way of life of the time. Very disappointed 😞 no atmosphere.
