Old sugar cane mill
Mar 2020
We stopped here on our tour of Santa Clara/Remedios. There is an old sugar mill you can see with its history on display as well as old steam trains. Upstairs you can buy cigars and drinks. Apparently on a different tour you can learn to roll cigars here too. Nice little spot with not much to see just in and out.

Lear about the sugar cane industry
Jan 2020 • Couples
We learned all about the culture of sugar cane processing and transport, and history of production. Additionally, there was a display of steam engines. It was fun to take a ride on the train to neighboring Remedios!

Bygone days of the sugar mills
Oct 2019 • Friends
Days of the sugar mills are gone here in Cuba. There only a very few left. This one has turned into an open air museum. It's really quite well done and preserved. We had a private tour guide that explained the history and process of sugar.

But first we had to sample a tasty sugar drink, made right then and there with fresh sugar canes. Such a fun process to watch. I would hate to think how they did it back in the day without modern machines.

Train ride wasn't available on the day we toured the museum. Our guide spoke English so that we could understand. Informational signs are in Spanish.

Private tour!

We were the only visitors. So the old, but cute and proud guide showed us around. The tour was interesting and a bit funny. The information is only in Spanish.

Interesting History of Sugar Industry
Feb 2019 • Friends
This was an interesting tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the sugar industry in Cuba. While not now a working factory, the machines are still there. We took a steam engine ride to get to the tour.

Sweet Tour

This museum presents the history of Cuba's sugar industry. You learn about the origin and development of the sugar cane business, including the types of tools and processes that were used, the links to slavery, and the importance of sugar to the Cuban economy. With the tour, you walk around to see old equipment, scale models of worker scenes, etc.

Attached to this attraction is a steam engine museum where you can look at a variety of locomotives and take a ride on one of the original models on a short trip through the countryside. That was fun (but smelly).

Interesting place to visit. You can see how they make sugars from the cane as well as the history of slavery. Must seen if you are going to county tour.

Riding the Rails
May 2018 • Friends
Had a tour of the museum and learned the history of sugar cane. Museum was in the process of preparing for an international meeting and thus housekeeping was in process. After touring the small museum and hearing the history. I had an opportunity to ride in the cab on the short journey to Remedios. Didn't sit on side where i was able to control the mechanics, but was just as exciting riding where the engineer sat. Purchased a book from the merchant on the history of Cuba, from their perspective. A short read that could be completed in an hour or so. Again, if you're visiting Cuba from US, you are a tourist enjoy all things touristy, it's part of the fun,

Enjoyed my time exploring and learning the history, was cool seeing the old trains and seeing how they make the sugar cane, the sugar cane was very sweet when we were allowed to taste it. Had a great time taking a ride on the steam train also.
