The adventure begins here …

Once lusted after as much as gold, as much sought after as Indian spices, as sweet on the palate as silk is round a woman’s neck, sugar has enjoyed an extraordinary existence, leaving a profound impression on the history and identity of Mauritius. Travelling through the museum, visitors learn about the deeply intertwined history of sugar and Mauritius, how it has all led to the harmonious, smiling and multicultural society it is today.

    Le Petit Futé
  • It not only tells the story of sugar in fascinating detail, but along the way covers the history of Mauritius, slavery, the rum trade and much, much more. Allow a couple of hours to do it justice.
