This museum is a permanent record of how sugar was produced in the 18th and 19th Centuries. The museum now stands as a tribute to Sir Frank Hutson, who with assistance from the Barbados National Trust, collected the items in the museum.
The history of sugar cultivation and production is displayed in this attractive museum which is located in the yard of the Portvale Sugar Factory, just off Highway 2A.
The museum is open throughout the year but if you visit during the reaping season (February to May), you can compare the machinery of previous times with the modern machinery of the Portvale factory.
The Sugar Museum is a Barbados National Trust property:
