it's ok, but don't do a great detour to see it. nice walk in the gardens, two friendly cats welcome you in the museum. I did enjoyed it, the only thing I was a little disappointed was I was expecting to taste many different bananas, there was only two that day and one was the most common one 'Cavendish' the verity that is available in all over the world

WOW, so well done. An excellent mixture between educational information, live tasting ( free bababa) and the very lovely park. Amazing. We loved it and it had been our highlight of our self-driving tour to the north. The 8 Euro entry fee is absolutely fair!

We were glad we came here although I wouldn't necessarily recommend a long detour to see it. But the placards (available in THREE languages at least -- French, English, and Creole) were informative, the bananas put out to eat were a nice treat, and the grounds were lovely.

This museum consists over a large room with an exposition explaining the history and key information about bananas. Then you can walk the grounds and view different banana trees.

it is a self-guided, low key museum but was interesting.

If you take the time to read through everything and walk the grounds, you would spend about an hour here. There is also a restaurant on the grounds but we did not visit it.

In the gift shop, the banana ketchup and banana rhum are recommended.

It was a very nice trail with tons of banana trees of all shapes/sizes/colors. A little steep entry cost for what it is but it was a good activity with the kids.

You can learn a lot about different kinds of the 3000 varieties of bananas here, and also see the actual banana trees. The wild bananas and the bananas growing upside down were a revelation. The visitor center has exposition in English, and the guide is quite fluent. The place is nicely landscaped and a walk through the shady banana grove is a pleasant thing to do on a warm day. One tip - the banana pie in the restaurant is not a banana cream pie.

Interesting exposition, lots of information (thankfully, also in English) and very pretty plants - mostly, of course, various types of bananas. There's a small shop with everything that can be made of bananas, including tasty ketchup. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.

For our two little kids it was not very interesting, but for us parents. I learned a lot about bananas (history, trading, slaves, etc.). The garden is full of different banana plants, as well nothing special for the kids. But anyway, I would visit it again, just for me. I playground for the kids would be very nice.
But the restaurant is delicious and you have to plan your visit, that you have meal or dinner here!

Never been through a banana grove before! Lots of lesser known banana facts at the museum (amusing English translations). a short walk through the bananas and then some goodies at the end.
