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.

Visite avec les enfants. Assez ludique et les enfants (8ans et 10ans) ont accroché grâce au petit livre de jeu vendu à l’accueil (25 roupies) En plus du sucre, on découvre aussi l’origine et l’histoir... more »Visit with the kids. Quite fun and children (8 years and 10 years) have hung through the little book of game sold to hospitality (25 rupees) in addition to sugar, we discover also the origin and history of the island of Mauritius. Finally, we can taste 12 different sugars, jams and rum! It takes at least 2:00 for the visit.
The place is ok if not so good. As I learn it was a sugar factory that eventually turn into restaurant and party place. They have kept the footprints of sugar factory and reform nicely that mold into party place. All old equipment and construction is still their they have just turn into party space. In fact there are many better option in Mauritius than this but its can try once place.
Sugar industry was the main pillar of the Mauritian economy for a long time and L'aventure du Sucre offers a comprehensive journey into the island's history since the first settlers. There is a lot of reading material to cover so it takes at least a couple of hours to browse through. And the sugar tasting included can be also quite nice.
