You learn a little about aloe, but not too much. They have a gangway over the facility, so you get a feel for production. Museum is very small.

We shopped here a few years ago at the recommendation of a guest at our timeshare. The recommendation was to use the Aloe Burn Relief Gel. The gel gave us amazing relief from sunburn. We decided to visit the museum this time. You can't beat the price... FREE! It's a small museum but loaded with history about the aloe plant and its many uses. The gift shop features many of aloe products which sell for less than most retail stores on the island. The burn gel and suntan lotion are our favorites. These products are not available in stores in the US. Definitely worth a visit.

We went on this tour early during our trip. It was free and didn't cost anything.
It was a nice facility and it was neat to see, but the guide sounded like she was a tape recorder and seemed a bit annoyed that we were there.
The lady in the shop was much niver and they had a large variety of products to buy. We saw later that we could buy them alomst everywhere. If I had known all of that, I would probably skip it. It's not worth the cab fare.

The factory is off the beaten path; we rented a car to get there. It's not too far away from the Mill Resort, which is where we stayed.

I think the tours run whenever people show up. It was only us and another couple that were there when we went. The guide walked us through some rooms with big posters discussing the history of the company, we watched a video and then went upstairs and looked through large windows into the mixing, research and packaging rooms. You couldn't take any photos upstairs. There's an aloe field right next door to the factory; not sure if that's the only one. At the end of the tour you can visit their store and purchase products.

It was a nice, relaxing side trip.
