L'Aventure du Sucre, Pamplemousses

4.2
#1 of 17 in Museums in Mauritius
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. L'Aventure du Sucre is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Pamplemousses Edition.

  • L'Aventure du Sucre is near the "Jardin de Pamplemousses" or SSR Botanical Garden. Can do a combined visit. Consists of the Sugar Museum which is an old renovated sugar factory. Very interesting as it...  more »
  • The Museum offers both an excellent insight into the history of Mauritius, as well as in the production of sugar (from cane), with excellent documentation. The ability to taste sugar and rum is also fantastic. An absolute 'must' for visitors to the North Island.

  • Interesting visit to an old sugar factory, now refurbished as a museum and general history of Mauritius. Worth the visit to know about the island history and get to know the when what and how things happened here. There's loads of information as well as quiz. Worth the visit but allocate at least 2h. Ends with rum a little tasting included.
  • 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.
  • History of Mauritius and sugar making process. But long be prepared to spend more than an hour if you are interested in both these topics. Visit the Chateau later (real life of sugar mill owners)
  • Everything is in French! Not a guided tour... you have to read everything- a bit boring! Restaurant is great!
  • Awesome staff..very welcoming and it's a place where u learn something new at each footstep while visiting.
