History Museum Specialty Museum
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. After some 200 years of production, the factory closed its doors in 1999. Much of the machinery remains in place, however, and locals who once worked here now run tours of the facility, offering a first-hand account of agricultural life in the country.

  • This is definitely one of the premium attractions in Mauritius. The museum is interactive and child friendly although you need to allow more time if you want to get the most out of the exhibits. The sugar cane, sugar and rum tasting were excellently guided. Even though we were technically running out of time the staff didn't hurry us. It was well thought out and attractively designed. Other attractions Mauritius could learn from this presentation.
  • Beautiful well kept and modern museum devoted to the sugar and rum history of the island. Immaculate grounds, great gift shop and a terrific restaurant on site.
  • Very good museum. A lot to see and a lot of information. The grounds are beautiful. Food at the restaurant is very good.
  • really nice place to visit and get a general knowledge on the sugar cane history in Mauritius, also a nice place to bring the kids and have a nice bite
  • If you have time it's worth a visit else skip it. Nice products at the gift shop.
