The most complete place to learn about sugar in La Réunion! In a converted factory, everything from history, culture, transformation or sociology of sugar. Only the audio guide system is bit complicated otherwise very enjoyable.
Stella Matutina is a fantastic museum with loads of information on the history of Reunion and sugar production. Make sure to bring enough time to browse the exhibitions and see the 4d movie in the cinema. Highly recommended!
We had a lovely family excursion here. The whale exhibition was interactive and great for our toddler. He also enjoyed the factory museum - especially the vehicles and watching the cranes/tractors outside. The audioguide was a bit unreliable and kept restarting or missing out sections.
An amazing array of history regarding not only the sugar cane industry but also the lives of those who worked for the sugar companies. Brilliant for all the information and being able to select the language of your guide.

it is great that museums like this one keep our History alive, the museum has been updated ever since I visited it when I was little and they did well. The visit is guided with audio which is a plus. It is not particularly entertaining...More
Very modern museum with superb fittings. Interactive screens covering ancient and modern history and the mascarene islands place during this time. Nice choice of souvenirs and liquors. Lacking English translations in the temporary exhibition which was thus very disappointing.
Sugar was & still is the lifeblood of Reunion. This former factory has been recently renovated to tell the story of not only the processing & manufacturing of sugar but also of the human effort in producing it from the slaves to present day workers....More
