One of the few excursions that we took from our cruise ship and glad that we did. I don't think much has changed in the past couple hundred of years as to how they manually process the nutmeg. A bit hard to hear our tour guide as the factory is in a busy downtown location but learned lots about the... More

This nutmeg processing plant was part of our island tour and I was glad we stopped to visit. It was very informative but most amazing of all is that all of it is done by hand. The shelling of the nutmeg, the stenciling of the bags, the drying process, all by hand. No machines. It smelled so good ! These... More

I had no idea how to prepare nutmeg from the tree. During this tour I could see everything done by hand. These ladies are paid by the piece so they work very hard to go fast and get quality nuts. The tour is informative. The ladies will let you take a picture for a tip.

This was one stop on a tour, but by far the most interesting. Watching the women pick over the nutmeg, sorting and placing in bags while men looked on (they print the bags the nutmeg goes in to) was like stepping back in time. There is no chatter as in places where mainly women work, in fact posters discouraging chatter... More

$EC 2.50 per person will get you a guided tour around the factory and the various stages nutmeg goes through before being exported.

We had a short tour of the first floor of the building. The tour guide showed us every detail of nutmeg preparation and sorting. The facility was organized and clean. There were also washrooms available near the entrance.

The Nutmeg Processing Plant is a real eye-opener. The methodology looks like it hasn't changed in several hundred years. The guide is very informative and you get to see the whole processing and shipping system. There is a small shop where you can purchase various spices. Worth looking at. A tip to the guide and to any woman whose picture... More

Visited as part of island tour. Not allowed to take pictures inside. Not much to it other than you see lots and lots of nutmegs and the crackling sounds as sound separate and work on them.
