Although the name of the museum may have you convinced you'll only be learning about rum, there is much more to be seen here regarding the history of the entire country.
The main exhibit of the museum takes you through three centuries of history about the art of making rum, using the distillery next door as their main focal point. After viewing a video you can taste the varieties of rum, then move on to the fully reconstructed cooper's shop, view over 5,000 insects, and view other artifacts that are important to the natural history of Guadeloupe. Another exhibit features scale yacht models, and yet another focuses on the cultures and traditions of the country.
Musee du Rhum is located on Basse-Terre, which means travelers to this area of Guadeloupe will have convenient access to the museum during their time there. Tourists will find a decent selection of lodgings situated around the area surrounding the museum.
