The sugar adventure recalls the history of sugar in Mauritius. Sugar has been a major money earner for the island for two centuries and is thus considered as a vital part of the Mauritian cultural heritage. With the diversification of the economy, sugar has lost its place as basic pillar of the economy (sugar is mostly produced for self-sufficiency now) but to capture its importance on the island throughout all these serving years, the Beau Plan Sugar Estate, which was a former sugar factory, has been turned into a sugar museum.
