Mauritius’ history comes to life before your eyes.

Before your visit even begins, a soundscape that evokes jungle life and the murmuring of the sea draws you towards a mysterious entrance… Beyond, a huge factory, with superbly preserved old machinery: gigantic cane crushing mills, evaporators resembling giant pipe organs, a 20th century boiler with a huge exhaust vent in which you can hear the echo of your own voice, or an 19th century steam engine rising imposingly from the ground. An authentic cast iron barge floats at the quayside, and a 1922 locomotive, ready to transport a load of cane, suddenly starts whistling… embark on a journey that will take you to the heart of Mauritius!

L’Aventure du Sucre explores the extraordinary saga of the men and women from different continents who built a country through hard work and made Mauritius what it is today: a harmonious, smiling, multicultural island. Discover the ingenuity of a people who knew how to make the most of their precious sugar cane – and how to develop a sugar industry at the forefront of ago-technological progress and the energy transition… A modern pedagogical approach ensures that the atmosphere of this place full of history is palpable.

 

Temporary exhibitions

L’Aventure du Sucre regularly offers temporary exhibitions on themes linked to the sustainability, the history of the island and its culture; whilst bringing to light the creativity of Mauritian artists. These exhibitions always combine educational notions and art.
