Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

IN this museum you get to see how the sugar cane business has evolved and industrialized going trough how sugar cane used to be extracted with wooden tools to more advanced windmill techniques amongst other curious and interesting facts surrounding the industry as well as the region.

This museo is located in Amaime, a semi rural town one-and-a-half hours north of Cali city. we paid an Uber driver $7/hour to take us and wait. There’s no public transport to the place but we also saw tour buses. Admission was about $4 and then you give a voluntary tip to the guide who explains the process of sugar cane crop, extraction and sugar/panels production as used in the 19th century. All of this while walk-in over 1 km through a tranquil and well maintained botanical gardens with 450 varieties of plants. Highly recommended for all ages including elderly people on wheelchairs as there is a paved walkway throughout. The tour takes an hour and you can buy honey and sugarcane products. Very interesting

The museum itself is a little bit boring to be honest. BUT the gardens and the setting are beautiful. The place is very well maintained by 5 or 6 hard working and friendly staff. When we arrived in the car park we exercised our little dog in the car park before putting him back in the car. The staff told us to let him visit with us. I doubt this would happen on a busier day but we were the sole visitors that day. Strolling through the paths and buildings was very relaxing! Not sure how this place stays open but I guess it is government or sugar company funded. It caters for larger school and university parties but best to avoid those times! We went on a Monday. 10,000 pesos to enter.

This museum has some very interesting items that are worth looking at and reading if you have an interest in learning a little bit about how the history of the sugar industry in Valle del Cauca state. It is a short, but worthwhile visit. Do bring a camera and clothes for warm weather.

Great exposure to both a spanish colonial hacienda and the history of Panela production throughout the whole country. Definitely worth the drive from Cali.

The Museo De La Caña is a beautifully preserved sugar plantation home set on an expansive estate filled with tropical gardens.

I highly recommend visiting during the week, if possible, to avoid the crowds and have more freedom to explore the beautiful grounds. The gardens themselves are a stunning example of tropical flora and fauna, and they are extremely well-maintained.

If you speak Spanish, definitely ask for a guide to accompany you! Our guide, Nelson, was fantastic, and we learned so much about both the lives of he original plantation owners and the slaves that worked to make the sugar cane. The estate has an impressive collection of trapiches- contraptions used to extract sap from the cane- and its fascinating to learn how the sugar was extracted in different times and in different regions.

Our kids (two elementary-school age, and one in University) were particularly struck by the stark difference between the huts of the workers and the opulence of the “big house”. It’s a beautiful day trip that will stay in your mind long after you’ve gone.

Not to be missed!

Interesting tour through the garden scattered with old sugar processing equipment. Visit La Maria hacienda not far away in the same trip.
