  • The Museum of the Indian company, recently renovated, is a marvel to understand better and very pedagogical way the creation of a more integrated economy since the 17TH century. The Museum, housed in the impressive Citadel of Port Louis, may be deemed a must-visit when we pass by Lorient. The Museum is visited in a couple of hours (maximum).

  • It's weird to see that the Museum is in Lorient and Port-Louis... For the rest, the Museum is absolutely superb, both in the plan of the exhibits of reconstructions, models,... allowing us to understand what was the East India Company.
