Maison Eureka, Mauritius
(3.4/5 based on 150 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Really interesting and authentically represented. Gives you a glance at that time. The waterfall behind the House is in 10-15 min walking distance.

  • After visiting Labourdonnais Chateau in the North, which also shows a mansion, Maison Eureka can not keep unfortunately. The building is a less good condition. The entrance fee with 300 rupees is i.Vgl. to the chateau with 375 rupees entrance fee not in the right proportion. The waterfalls, which have consoled over something were the only good. These prefer the Chateau so who has the opportunity.
