This museum of the sugar cane industry upon which Mauritius' industrial history was based is a must for history buffs. The amount of material to absorb is prodigious. Plan on several hours to even scratch the surface of the historical detail.More

The bus doesn't go directly to the entrance. You'd need to take a bus to the Pamplemousses roundabout and walk to it from there. That would take no more than 10 minutes.
