Stella Matutina Agricultural and Industrial Museum

Recommended
The museum took over the 5 000m2 of a sugar factory that closed in 1978: a very successful architectural rehabilitation. This is the museum to see in Réunion: if you only visit one, choose this, or the Cité du Volcan. It draws on the whole history of Réunion, illustrating in particular the importance of agriculture on the island, from its origins to the present day, with coffee, sugar cane, spices, vanilla and geraniums.
