This place was pretty cool they show you the process of collecting the gel and best of all is that it is free ! All you do is go to the information desk and ask about a tour

There are not many signs leading you to this place. We went in the afternoon and were able to walk the gallery over the factory floor. There were no guides or signs to explain what was happening. However, the history exhibit on the first floor is a good reason for a visit. It told clearly about the economics and agriculture... More

15 minute behind glass tour, on a Friday when no one was working (at 2pm). Gift shop was final stop - prices OK compared to cruise terminal booth.

The story of Aloe production in Aruba is one of hard work BY HAND!! The short tour was very informative. We were unable to take pictures during the tour. Our guide was knowledgeable about Aloe. At the conclusion of the tour there is an opportunity to purchase gifts in the gift shop. Yes, it is pricey...but the whole process is... More

This was our first trip to the aloe factory despite our many visits to Aruba. The little museum is very comprehensive and interesting. We were amazed by the cleanliness of the facilities and enjoyed the shop attached to the factory. The tour is free and doesn't take long, giving visitors the opportunity to sample as many of the aloe products... More

A passenger on our flight told us about the Aruba Aloe Museum/Tour. It is free, so nice for families. Their is a short film in the museum area and then a tour of the production and fields. The tour ends in their store, of course!

The Aloe Factory gives a nice tour every 15 minutes or so. It is free, short, and simple. You learn all about the history and see the factory. I definitely learned a lot about Aloe that I never knew. While you are waiting for the tour to start there are restrooms and a history/museum section which was interesting to read.... More

It was very nice. The tour was very interesting. we liked it a lot. You are not allowed to take pictures during the tour inside. The store is nice but be prepared to spend a lot of money. Otherwise, We liked the aloe factory a lot.

This was my 2nd visit to Aruba Aloe and my friend's 1st. Learn about the history of aloe cultivation and processing and if you're lucky, watch the process on site. I thought perhaps the products would be cheaper at the plant, but in fact one product I purchased was the same price as at the Hyatt.

Surprisingly a very interesting tour of the aloe factory. Personally I use the product but actually discovered new products that I also purchased. You are not allowed to take pictures so I wish they would have sold postcards. I would recommend this tour just to learn something new.
