The Sugarcane Museum shows how Swaziland sugarcane is produced, milled and sold. The new museum blends wall panels, touchscreen computers, showing short video clips and vintage machinery, to inform and entertain visitors. See how geology and climate combine, creating ideal conditions for growing sugarcane in Swaziland. There are also displays on how sugar originated thousands of years ago and then spread worldwide, as well as the history of the industry in Swaziland. Displays show how the sugarcane industry is transforming and uplifting smallholder rural farmers though innovative farmer companies. There is a century-old steam engine and other vintage agricultural machinery.
The Swaziland Sugarcane Museum was established by the European Union in the heart of the sugar-belt at Tambankulu Sugar Estate near Simunye. It was opened on August 21, 2017, by the right honourable Prime Minister of Swaziland, Dr. Barnabus Sibusiso Dlamini.
