Beauport, Sugar Cane Country

Museum - Port-Louis

Since 2004, with help from Guadeloupe’s County Commission, this former flagship building of north Grande Terre’s sugar industry is now open to visitors, be they tourists or locals: its name is Beauport, “le pays de la canne” (Sugar Cane Country). A part of the former factory has been converted into a museum dedicated to sugar and the sugar cane industry. Each part of the site’s industrial heritage is explained in detail, using a mixture of fun and informative displays. Three centuries of history are recounted via a series of exhibits and displays throughout the museum, including a mini-train for the young and not so young, and a chance to try a glass of pure sugar cane juice.

Open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
