4.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Visited with 2 children aged 5 and 8, we stayed 2 hours! If I had the opportunity, I would have stayed longer to deepen certain subjects. The Museum is not that the production of sugar cane, we discover the history of the island, we learn about slavery, privateers, world trade in sugar, the life of the island. For children, interactive course is proposed, it is very well done because it arouses interest and is very playful (movies, quizzes, puzzles, games...). An exhibition of local artists is presented at the end of the Museum. The staff at the reception is excellent! Ditto the vigils who greet you and take the time to ask how goes your stay on the island. The only downside was at the shop (mandatory to go to the exit passage) where the cashier barely looked at us and said hello or thanks, or even responded to our goodbye. When, shocked, I did notice that the minimum of professionalism is to be polite with customers, I got as an answer "thank you Ma'am for your advice" in a tone "steff". Damage to finish the visit to the Museum on this false note...

  • 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.
  • Nice Museum. Basically based on the history of sugar in Mauritius.
  • Nice attraction at a low price with projects to do even more soon
  • Really nice museum. I was very surprised how professional this place is run. There are many historical things to see. Very nice gift shop with tasting all kinds of different types of sugar. My kids loved it!
  • Well worth a visit, good information, and large scale exhibits
