Musee du Rhum, Sainte Rose

#2 of 18 in Museums in Guadeloupe
Museum · Specialty Museum
Discover the soul of Guadeloupe through art and the tradition of rum-making at Musee du Rhum, covering 300 years of history. A video shot at the museum's distillery walks you through the process of rum-manufacturing; later, you'll have the chance to sample the high-quality product. Walk through the rest of the museum's idiosyncratic collection, which includes a gallery of 180 cases of insects, 40 models of tall ships, and a sand table representing a map of Guadeloupe. This quaint, quirky attraction appeals to your inner historian and your inner hedonist in equal measure.

Definitely worth a visit.
  • Friendly people and good rum.
