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!

the museum is very interesting but is very large. I recommend 2 hours at least to get the full experience. it is worth taking time to read all the history. unfortunatly the museum closes at 5 so get there early. overall definetly worth the visit.

We did the museum tour and it was interesting but a bit wordy and not well ordered. It did give a good view of the history of Mauritius which is inextricably tied into sugar. The best bit though was the restaurant set in a garden with a tranquil feel to it. The service was very efficient and helpful but it... More

This wonderful museum was highly recommended by locals and I am really glad I visited. There is ample parking and the museum itself in the old factory. Upon entering you walk to a room with 3 short videos simultaneously showing: nature, the volcanic beginnings and the arrival of men. Next you walk into the factory itself. The walls have interesting... More

An interesting and well put together exhibition on the history of the sugar trade, and its' manufacture. The attached restaurant is excellent.

A visit to the museum is a perfect way to spend a rainy (or windy) day. The museum is not only about sugar itself but also about how Mauritius today came to be and how the sugar industry was a big influence in it's history. The museum is located in an old sugar factory and the process is explained next... More

We all found the factory tour really boring. 2-3 hours to know the history of sugar? How boring could that be. And all the info is laid out in a totally boring way. No excitement of any kind. Just keep reading all the plaques. Had I known this earlier, I definitely wouldn't have gone for it for sure. We were... More

Aventure du Sucre is a good place to visit during a visit of the region. It's best to visit the Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens which are across the road too. You can see the story of the sugar cane and taste some rum too. There is a nice shop there too.
