The Rum Museum immerses you in past, to discover the Guadelupian...

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.

After learning about rum making we were ready to taste some of the selections. Despite our initial protest against visiting the insect museum upstairs, we were convinced to give it a courtesy look since an employee was so insistent. It was actually rather fascinating to imagine the work that went into creating the insect exhibit, and we were glad for... More

Hard to know what to make of this place - starts with large models of giraffe, elephant and dinosaur at the entrance, then upstairs more random animal models, a room full of mounted butterflies, moths and other insects and another room full of model sailing ships. Downstairs is a basic rum museum with old artefacts and explanations in English and... More

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

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
