  • I confirm previous opinions: very interesting tour which allows you to discover the history of the island through the sugar harvest, followed by a tasting of sugars and rums. 380 rupees the ticket: that is not the problem.

  • “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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 museum, never thought i'll see a place like that. It has lot of content on Mauritian history and how sugar is linked with Mauritius, it has variety of items associated wit sugar industry starting from containers to tools. It has machinery also for display and few sections on processing sugar. At the end of your there is sugar tasting and Rum tasting with an option to make a purchase also.
