Visit L'Aventure du Sucre, a museum housed in the former Beau Plan sugar factory. A range of informative and interactive exhibits introduce you to the story of sugar in the country, providing insight into the general history of Mauritius, slavery in the country, and the rum industry.

  • How to understand the history of sugar in the world, the history of Mauritius, and the technique of manufacture of sugar in one visit. The course is very well done, fun for the kids too. The fact to be established in a former factory, which formed there is little time, reinforces an impression of life, history, true. In short, we liked!

  • “Ideal place to learn almost everything about Mauritius” This is the ideal place to learn almost everything about Mauritius - from the discovery of the island to the actual process of sugar and rum-making. The visit also includes sugar and rum tasting, which are very interesting. I visited once in 2004 and 10 years later it is still just as fascinating - budget on spending at least 2-3 hours there, a must-do if you go to Mauritius! Visited November 2014
  • Museum narrating the history and importance of sugar industry on the island throughout the years. The transformation process of sugarcane into sugar and byproducts such as rum is very informative. The tour ends with a "dégustation" of the different sugar varieties and rums.
  • A sugar factory museum with quite an insight to the history of Mauritius as well. Entrance fee abit on the high side, but the museum was well lay out with a lot of factory equipment still intact on display.
  • Nice museum with lots of background information about the history of the island and especially sugar production. Recommended.
  • Very well made and maintained place. The entrance fees is on a higher side for the tourists but that's the case with most of the locations in Mauritius.
