The entry rate at the museum is the public rate. However, the member rate applicable for Mauritians and residents, is the result of a special effort from our company to make the culture accessible to all local people and to encourage them to visiting this educational site. 


L’Aventure du Sucre’s official app can be downloaded from the AppStore and Google Play. It helps French, English, German, Chinese, Russian, Italian and Spanish visitors find out more about the history of Mauritius and its people, so intimately tied to the story of sugar.

It provides translations of relevant information on:

  • the main themes of the museum,
  • the special sugar and rum tastings in our craft shop,
  • our restaurant, Le Fangourin, with its sunshine cuisine full of Mauritian flavours and savours
