Sugar was part of all the accomplishments of former Isle de France. Introduced from Java by the first Dutch colonists in 1639, the sugar cane enables them to produce alcohol by the process of distillation. It is only during the French period that the first sugar mills were built for the purpose of exportation in 1745. The production of this gold, sometimes white, sometimes brown, was done on an ongoing basis. During the British period, it was taken to another level, by becoming the main economic activity of the island. Showing how much the history of sugar and the History of Mauritius go hand in hand. 

The tour of this sugar museum lasts for at least 1:30 am. However, for a complete and detailed visit, you need to consider a 3-hour tour. You will witness the birth of the island and get acquainted to sugar throughout the ages: you will go back in time to discover the chimneys of the old Mauritians factories, and then take a glimpse at the future through the technological progress which accompanied the development of the sugar cane industry.
