  • Have been outside of these hours there. Nice is the fact that the exterior yet accessible and have been sufficient for us. The Silktree, the steam locomotives and the way in the mangroves were edifying!

  • This museum located in the three - Ilets is intended to trace the transformation of sugar cane, on the basis of the triangular trade, continuing with the Organization of slavery on the island society and the structure of the House, and ending with the factories. It was discovered on the floor a collection of objects derived from the different brands of rum on the island. The entry price is very attractive, so more reason to get there! In addition to its proximity to the forest Vatable, which allows to associate a small walk in the forest!

  • This place brings together a lot of information on the transformation of sugar cane. Built on the site of an old Distillery, well maintained.

  • 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.
