L'Aventure du Sucre, Pamplemousses

4.2
#1 of 16 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.

  • This site wonderfully traces the history of Mauritius and the sugar adventure on the island... The exhibition is beautiful, hyper documented, the visit is long... a little too much for kids. The site is really great, a real discovery

  • Very nicely built Museum. You can learn here how when where and by whom the sugar was grown and refined. The insight how difficult working conditions were also. The Museum is in an old factory.

  • In a former sugar factory is described the history of Mauritius since the discovery by the Dutch, the history of the sugar, the East India Company. Maybe a little too much text, but photos and especially a staging of quality. Do not avoid if you visit the North of the island, near the garden of grapefruit. Is there a restaurant in the beautiful garden of the former House Leader factory.

  • It will probably last you about more than half a day if you are to visit AND learn about Mauritius, with a definitive focus on the sugar cane industry. As a local, I also got to learn a lot of new things about our history. Life was so different. Very well explained and illustrated with short videos and animations. You can take mini breaks and carry on with your tour. Very well made and maintained with a good focus on educational aspects for the school goers. Parking is adequate. Restaurant is nice albeit a little pricey for the average Mauritian. Expect to shed about 20 Euros/head for lunch. All in all a good place to discover and learn about Mauritius in the past!
  • A place to visit absolutely. Restaurant available exotic plants. Sugar industry historical museum. Amazing views
  • Interesting journey through the history of Mauritius with an obvious focus on sugar. It is worth to visit the store only too. Great sugar and rum tasting!
  • It's not just about sugar, it's the entire history of the island. Go see it and at the end get yourself a. good bottle of rum.
  • Came way from the south for lunch after checking the website ans closing hours, after reaching here we learnt that the resto is closed for private event!!! And we were finally the losers!!! First and last time stepping here!!! Didnt even visit the museum!!! Cheers
