Friday, April 3, 2015
The visit of "Aventure du Sucre", an old sugar mill that has been transformed into a museum, is without doubt the best cultural center in Mauritius. Its aim is to present to visitors the secrets and techniques of the main agricultural crop of the island: sugar cane.
By visiting this museum, you learn just as much about the sugar manufacturing techniques as about the history of Mauritius. Located on the premises of the old factory at Beau Plan, "Aventure du Sucre" offers an interesting, multi-faceted and fun tour around the factory. The interactive displays invite guests to learn all about the different stages of the sugar production, and the tour finishes with a tasting of 15 different kinds of Mauritian sugar - an informative and interesting outing for the whole family.
