This sells itself as a sugar museum but within the winding trail through this old sugar mill there is a lot of information about the history of Mauritius - some of it relating to the sugar trade.
To take in all the information would require some hours and a good deal of concentration. It is still possible to see the old sugar producing machinery which is quite impressive. One small note is that towards the end of the tour it is necessary to go back down some stairs on which the top step is much higher than the rest - a fact which should be better signposted.
The sugar and/or rum tasting at the end are in the shop and, I suspect, designed primarily to entice you into buying some souvenirs.
Allow at least 45-60 minutes to do a whistle-stop tour and at least another hour or more to take in more of the information available.
I am not sure that this museum is worth a long trip on its own but, combined with a trip to the excellent (and neighbouring) Pamplemousse botanical gardens we would suggest that the sugar museum is a good way to spend an hour or so.
There is a restaurant (which we did not try).
