How is sugar made? How did it get to Prussia? And what would the world be without sugar? The Sugar Museum has been answering these and many other interesting questions for 100 years.

The cultural and economic history of sugar, the cultivation of sugar cane and sugar beets and its socio-historical impact are exhibited as well as the history of slavery on plantations.

The Sugar Museum moved from Berlin-Wedding to the areal of the German Museum of Technology and will reopen in autumn 2015.
