We went on a monday around noon and there were no other visitors there than us. A lot of workers there maintaining the grounds, but, we had to wait for someone to purchase tickets. In addition, no tour guides :(. But, it was ok, they gave us a little map that had brief descriptions of the various stations and since... More

It is looks like more sugar cane park then museum. If you are coming from Cali, Amaime (where sugar cane museum located) will take around 1hr and to the museum another 1hr. Therefor, I wouldn't go there if I didn't have a ride. 5000 peso (apx 2,5usd) per person entrance fee. They have only Spanish guide so if don't speak... More

The story behind sugar cane is an untold story of slavery, conquer and technology. In this museum, this story is untold, between the stations that show how sugar cane was extracted from the plants, through the different times and in different parts of Colombia. The old house is magnificent, it recreates how life was at the end of the colonial... More

This is virtually a travel through time and process in an old sugar farm. Not pretentioous but showing things as they were and how they developed. Combine this with na awsome piece of culture manged in park quality and you have a super experience. Price performance is very good, but be prepared that transport to the place may be little...

I am from this beautiful city. In all this years I've never seen before this marvellous museum. Full of interesting facts but specially with amazing landscapes and water architecture. Try staying behind the crowd to listen to the rumour of the river . inspiring, enjoy

The Meseo de la Caña de Azucar was a very inteesting contrast of the old and the beautiful. The gardens where amazing and the history of how sugar cane evolved in Colombia was interesting. I little out of the way but worth the trip.

The explanation of how they process the sugar cane was good. All the gardens were awesome, they are filled with colorful plants. The landscape is relaxing.

This was a spectacularly beautiful garden. Everywhere there were little channels of water flowing. You always heard water gurgling. It is just beautiful. The old historical hacienda is also very much worth the visit. You must visit this mueum when you are in Cali.

This is a beautiful location near Cali. It is worth the time for a relaxing visit. The grounds are kept very well and the look into the past of the local area was enjoyable. If you can get the local sugar cane drink, you have to try it.
