The Rum Museum immerses you in past, to discover the Guadelupian traditions, the workers in the past, and the know-how of the manufacturing of rum. From the sugar cane cut to the fabrication of agricol rum. Many objects, collections of cutlass, exhibition of the traditional jobs by time, which restore the soul of authentic Guadeloupe. The visit continues with the gallery of the big models of transport sailboats of time, redrawing the history of the first boats built until our days. The rum museum and universal welcomes the collection of the most beautiful insects and butterflies of the world (Mr Chalumeau). More than 5000 insects chosen with the biggest delicacy, as well as one of the biggest "coléoptère" of the world. And finally, the distillery REIMONENQ open more than 100 years ago in 1916, proposes you a tasting of all agricol rum. Punches and cocktails, white rums and famous old Rums which gives the taste of the traditions.

Visited on a very wet day but found the rum exhibit interesting. However the other exhibitions on model shops animal and insects were also amazing. Particularly how the history of the boats were explained.
