Nice place to visit, a historical overview of Mauritius and also of the sugar industry in Mauritius. You are unfortunately overwelmed with information. Explanations could be shorter.

I really like the way this exposition is prepared, you can learn a lot not only about the sugar production, but also about the history of Mauritius. There is also a lot of interesting old photos. The pannels are quite clear and organized in a way you can easily find things that interest you the most. At the end of... More

In Nov 2013 I took my 2nd trip to L'Aventure du Sucre. I tried to have an open mind because this museum really tries to make itself interesting but I really didn't enjoy it either time. The museum has too much in it. It would take me a week to read it all and for my kids - forget it!... More

Taken many overseas friends who were very impressed. The history of the island is fascinating and has been put together exceptionally well in the "museum". Good interactive displays so the children don't get bored. Great restaurant to visit after your tour.

L'aventure du sucre puts you right into Mauritius history because sugar is(or was) the major resource for the island. Sugar history brings you back to the days the French and English domination when Mauritius was a colony. Slaves and contract workers labored in the fields to produce sugar. The museum is great and very well shows the steps to produce... More

Factory turned museum with both insight into Mauritius' history as well as the production of sugar from sugar cane. Well worth visit - whereby in the end one can do sugar tasting and (for adults) a rum tasting. When visiting in morning one can have a nice lunch at the Fangouring restaurant at same premises .

To us English speaking folk, this attraction is known as Sugar World, just so you know! This old sugar factor, turned museum, really is a great place. Now, I can't really review the entire museum, because we only booked for a taster session of sugar and rum followed by lunch, but just those activities alone were good enough to make... More

If you visit only one place in Mauritius, this must be it. Along with learning everything about sugar production you get to learn a great deal about the country, it's people and the history. A lunch in the restaurant afterwards is just the perfect ending to a great tour. Excellent food in a paradise like setting.

In this charming museum you'll learn about Mauritius' sugar cane cultivation, harvesting and cane sugar manufacture forged over more than three and a half centuries. Very interesting information, photos and display boards that takes you through the country's fascinating history - but keep in mind that this was made possible because of slavery... Be sure to allow time for sugar... More
