Cuba's Manuel Martinez Prieto sugar mill, closed last year as part of an overall restructuring of the sugar industry, is slated to become a "sugar culture referral center."

The mill, located with Havana's municipal limits, "will work as a sort of factory-museum that will provide information about the history, tradition and future of the sugar industry," according to a government news release.

Artifacts at the museum include renovated steam locomotives, restored slave barracks and old sugar mills. The center will also boast housing quarters and a baseball field built over 100 years ago, as well as a garden with different varieties of sugar cane. (1st May 2003)
