Create an itinerary including Maison Eureka
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. For Maison Eureka and beyond, use our Moka travel route builder to get the most from your Moka vacation.

  • The house and the place is very nice and the view but when we been to the waterfall is really dangerous and not many signs and I fault in a rock which luckily I have minor injuries but it could be easily worse is very tricky paths!!
  • very nice and refreshing place, there is another where we don't have to pay for the entry fee.
  • A colonial splendor The old mansion could be seen in all its glory Everything is well maintained and even you could touch the articles sit on the chairs and use the objects! There is also two waterfalls behind the house which is must visits but the water is not very clean The ticket rates are very high at about MUR 300 per head
  • Great place to carryout team seminars.
  • We went there today but house was close although by the schedule it should have been open. But that's not the main problem. When we arrived and looked for the entrance a huge dog from that area attacked us (I don't think it's a stray dog because looked like a pedigree - I don't know about dogs but I think it looks like a bulldog  or somethink similar). We were not in private area, we did not go beyond any fences, we were near the public road on the scootor. My girlfriend managed to run to the scooter on which I was. The dog was very aggressive. We started to leave her, the dog chased us, as a result, we fell at the turn. What would happen if someone was there with small children? I think the owner of the dog has no brains. Be careful.
