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. Much of the machinery remains in place, however, and locals who once worked here now run tours of the facility, offering a first-hand account of agricultural life in the country. L'Aventure du Sucre is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Pamplemousses Edition.

That is what interested me.
Nous avons passé une après-midi superbe avec Melissa comme guide. Elle connait parfaitement son sujet et arrive à passionner son public. Bravo. Quand aux dégustations rien à redire. more »We had a great afternoon with Melissa as a guide. She knows her subject perfectly and comes to fascinate his audience. Bravo. When tasting nothing wrong.
went for one wedding there. the food was very good. I usually don't eat everywhere because of my allergies. Over there when i said that I'm allergic to onion they prepared separate meal for me.
It will probably last you about more than half a day if you are to visit AND learn about Mauritius, with a definitive focus on the sugar cane industry. As a local, I also got to learn a lot of new things about our history. Life was so different. Very well explained and illustrated with short videos and animations. You can take mini breaks and carry on with your tour. Very well made and maintained with a good focus on educational aspects for the school goers. Parking is adequate. Restaurant is nice albeit a little pricey for the average Mauritian. Expect to shed about 20 Euros/head for lunch. All in all a good place to discover and learn about Mauritius in the past!
