We took the steam train to this location and had a chance to walk around the yard and look at all the old steam engines which was interesting if you're into trains. The museum building itself was closed for repairs, so didn't get to go...More

It was interesting to see the process that they used to use to extract the sugar from the sugar cane and the size of the machinery was incredible. They didn't hid the fact that slaves were used and it must have sounded horrendous when it...More

Nice to see but it is ''far in the woods'' and for the travelling that we had to do... I wouldn't go back. Although for people who like trains, there are steam train to see and a small ride on one.
