The museum is fabulously presented in a working sugar mill, with lots of videos, billboards and pictures illustrating the history of Mauritius. The museum explores the sugar industry and important events in the timeline, as well as the history of Mauritius. It shares fascinating insights about the island's people, plants, animals and so on. We spent 2 hours here reading... More

I visited the Sugar Museum with my husband, son and daughter (aged 20 and 19) on 20th August 2014. The price list shows half price for students aged 18 to 26 but beware as you need to show formal student ID card as proof of your age and student status - who takes these on holiday? Despite the fact that... More

A really interesting attraction charting the history of Sugar and the inhabitants of the island. The rum & sugar tasting at the end was a novel idea. Recommend a visit.

Really liked how it was laid out in a giant factory. Almost a little to much info at times, could of been a tad more concise. Still very enjoyable and a must see if you go to Mauritius.

Interesting place but the tour is padded out with a general history of the island as let's face it, Sugar isn't exactly the most complex and enriching museum topic the most bizarre element to this place is the sugar tasting at the end of the tour, you essentially taste 7 sugars.. which is just a little odd.. and amazing...once you've...

This is what a museum should be! Interactive, complete and modern. A good concept with a lot of information, a working cane factory and tasting of Mauritius' largest export product! Kind people and an amazing restaurant for a perfect lunch next to the museum. During our holiday the suger mill was also the host of White Sensation, the best dance... More

Interesting museum detailing the history of Mauritius (which strongly related to that of sugar). Good from what was available in the resto, but service in the restaurant is pretty poor. I mean, you would not serve some people at a table and then bring the rest of the people's order when the others have eaten theirs! Also don't expect to... More

We went as part of a guided day out - there is a tonne of info in this museum that I must say is more fascinating than it's name suggests. We returned a later date for the gorgeous restaurant alone, for a wonderful take on Mauritian cuisine

Although there is a lot to take in, mostly written exhibits, the history of Mauritius (not just the sugar) is laid out well. Some big machinery to keep inquisitive engineers happy, and the promise of sugar tasting at the end to keep the kids engaged. I also enjoyed the Rhum tasting too. Very informative, well presented and a good restaurant... More

A last minute decision to visit l'Adventure du Sucre was well rewarded. Everything you ever needed to know about the history of the Island and more! It is not just about the history of Sugar. A great place to start your holiday in Mauritius and the rum and sugar tasting at the end is a bonus!
