We had no preconceptions and visited on the off-chance and, as is often the case, enjoyed our visit all the more. The entry fee (7 euros) allowed us to browse a display in French and English (something that we didn't find very often during our stay!) about the evolution of the banana plant, its importance in world trade, plantation life...

I visited this out door museum years ago, not much changed, but I enjoyed it just the same this time around. The information section is well done and informative. Outside was no frills with many banana plants to be seen in all flouring stadiums. Finally in the small shop you can taste and buy everything made of banana. A much... More

The museum covers all topics connected to bananas, from botanical facts (varieties) to health aspects and global production trends and figures. Quite interesting to see all the different species in the natural setting. The entrance fee it quite high, as well as the different products that can be bought at the museum shop. However, definitely worth a visit.

Learned about 60 types of bananas which are grown all over the world. Museum has video and displays which are quite interesting, yet simple. The gift shop had samples of banana ketchup, banana wine and banana bread and cake. We sampled and bought alot of things for gifts to bring back home. The nicest people run this museum, nicer than...
