A very informative and fascinating Distillery. Don't miss the upstairs insect and butterfly museum. Bugs from the entire world, I don't know how they ended up in a Rhum distillery, but it is true Museum quality. They have a short movie not to be missed and it is available in most languages. This is another place our rental car GPS... More

English below Pour 6€ vous avez des panneaux expliquant la fabrication du Rhum, un zoo "virtuel" tout pourri, un insectarium intéressant, une salle de maquettes de bateaux pas mal et vous pouvez goûter du rhum ... Je trouvais le tout un peu kitsch ! For 6€ you can discover how is made the rhum with pictures and text in English.... More

We arrived after the museum had closed for the day, but the very nice ladies working there we happy to let us have a tasting of one rum each. The small bottles of rum were only a few Euros to purchase, so we purchased a few so that we could taste some more and they were happy to let us... More

This place is kind of hilarious and somewhat creepy. It has a 6 euro entrance fee. They have a bunch of animal statues hanging around both inside the museum and out, because why not. There's obviously an exhibit on the production of rum, which is lots of pictures and tools and mannequins with English and French explanations. It's okay. There... More

A small building housing tools and equipment from the old rum making days. They still make it here and charge 6 euro to come in. This includes a 15 minute film in multiple languages about the process, a exhibition on insects which was more interesting than we expected, some maritime exhibits and most importantly rum tasting. The tasting is a... More

You learn everything about rhum, its production, from history till now, but not only Rhum, in second floor is very attractive exhibition of nature and also historic boats, legends and sea discoveries... At the end you can taste many different rhums as per your choice, pity for car drivers :-)

This is one of the strangest museums we have visited in terms of the upper level exhibits that have nothing to do with rum, but we really enjoyed it! The history of rum is explained well in signs and displays on the lower level. All the signs were written in French and English. There is also a brief video that... More
