  • This museum is interesting and the price of entry is low. But unfortunately this lack of audio guide or a few comments to make this visit more attractive. More information begin to date and the update of the data could be somewhat newer (latest data dating to before 2000).

  • Too expensive (€4) to read signs found on the internet. Some objects but without explanation and prohibition to take pictures.

  • A great low cost place to visit to review the bad and good of the sugar cane 300 year reign as the key element that shaped the Eastern Caribbean islands.
  • Sugar cane museum. Has French and English descriptions. No photos allowed. Free entry.
  • Useless for children, a shame to have to pay for kids and get police by staff not at all welcoming. I'd more and do not recommend it. I hope that my comment will be seen by as many people as possible.

  • The small museum with some interesting facts about the sugar cane, slavory and rum production. Great with some translation to english since I don't understand french. €4 fee, around a one hour stop.

  • Very informative and the little test to see what it is to have too much alcohol (rum) in the blood is a good laugh...
