Sir Frank Hutson Sugar Museum

Fodor's Review

This museum is in an old boiling house in the yard of the Portvale Sugar Factory, one of two sugar refineries still in operation in Barbados. The museum has a collection of original machinery, old photographs, and other implements used to refine sugar and make molasses. A video presentation explains the production process from cutting the cane to sweetening your coffee to making rum. During the reaping season (February through May), you can also tour the modern factory to see how sugar is produced today. Call first, though, to make sure the guide (a retired worker) is on hand.
