Sugar World has become an ab-solute ‘must’ in the cultural and tourism scene of the island. Its remarkable conception and its peda-gogical entertainment standard are
easily at par with those found in Europe and elsewhere. Its pays tribute to the men and women of all commu-nities who devoted their labour and lives to the only livelihood of their country of that time: sugar. It bring alive the Mauritian heritage of rolling and swaying cane fields finely chisel-led stone chimneys and its complex multicultural society , all inexplicably linked to the development of the
mother industry of the island.

L’Aventure du Sucre features three independent entities: the Museum, the Village Boutik and the Restaurant “Le Fangourin”.

The Museum is a spectacular exhibition inside a real sugar factory which stopped its industrial activity in 1999. All the original machinery are present and lead the visitor through the fairly complicated process of sugar pro-duction, the sugarcane plant and its end product, the sugar routes and  the sugar markets. This industry is
also linked to the beginning of the history of Mauritius, its new immi-grant population and the development of its young nation.

An array of interactive screens, large albums, texts, pictures, animated models and quiz invite the visitor to participate and to learn. Giant screens, the huge wheels of the sugar mill, a puffing field locomotive and a live size ‘Chaland’ or sugar barge make this museum very lively and interesting.

Students or scholars will find a vast database ; specialists or laymen will discover and understand this fascinat-ing country; journalists will grasp the opportunity of working in-depth on certain specific topics , the social de-velopment around a factory chimney, the slave trade or the importance of international agreements and sugar prices.

Visit the temporary exhibition based on biodiversity which examines human impact on nature and presents an outline of possible strategies to stop the erosion of biological diversity. Get acquainted to the current disrup-tion of ecosystems, new catalogues of species, new equilibrium between do-mestic and wild organisms through
videos, quiz and albums.

The Village Boutik looks up to a magnificent chimney. It offers a wide variety of by-products and sugar re-lated souvenirs on the themes of the museum, (local craftsmanship, deco-ration, elegant and casual textiles, tableware, and a bookshop). Exclu-sively available at Sugar World are the delicious traditional confectioneries as well as tasting of 11 unique different types of unrefined Mauritian sugars,
served with old rum. An absolute must for the sweet tooth!

A visit to ‘Le Fangourin’ Restaurant under its shaded veranda facing the plush garden of Beau Plan is a perfect end to the visit of Sugar World. The cuisine is typically regional with its rel-ishing delicate exotic flavours.
