(180 reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Step into the country's colonial history at Maison Eureka, an authentic 19th-century home now housing a museum. Built in 1830 and serving as residence to several British and French aristocrats throughout the next century, the house features a long veranda in an attractive European style, while its surrounding grounds offer good examples of regional plants, such as palm and mango trees. Converted to a museum in 1986, the estate displays period artifacts, documents, and trinkets in its colonial-style interior. Browse the collection of antique maps, Chinese and Indian treasures, and colonial technology--such as the unusual shower. With our online itinerary creator, Moka attractions like Maison Eureka can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • I really liked this colonial house! I would advice you to go have lunch there: the restaurant is really nice (not cheap, but not expensive either) and when you eat there you do not have to pay the entrance fee to the mantion. I recommend the merlin salad as the entry and beef dry curry as main dish...
