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.

  • L'Aventure du Sucre in Pamplemousses is fantastic. Full history not only of sugar on the Island - but the Island itself. Very informative and well documented - very interesting. Staff are helpful.....  more »
  • the museum in general is okay.. but i want to warn you about the shop - you have the opportunity to test rum after the visit of the museum - as we really liked it we bought 2 bottles. later that day.....  more »
  • Very nice place to understand the history of the island and how the sugar can was collected! The museum is very interesting. We loved spending 3 hours there.
  • It is really worth a trip. Here you can learn everything about the sugar industry in Mauritius in an original sugar factory. The exhibition need not shy away from comparison with international industrial museums. Really great. Entry costs money.
