  • This place can easily go unnoticed. It is located around 10mins from the Caudan waterfront. There is no entry free. The museum is maintained well and kids will enjoy this place. It will cover the vari...  more »
  • Yes the place is old, tatty & a little decrepit but the Dodo exhibit is all you need to see. If you want to find out what happened to these birds this is where you will find out & see a few stuffed sp...  more »
  • A lot of Mauritian history on display. But certain items are in a piteous state. Still worth the visit. A dodo replica can also be seen on display. Just too bad the old baobab tree in front of the mus...  more »

  • Small, but perfectly formed. It is housed in what looks like an old colonial house, with tall ceilings. Good exhibits on the Dodo and the history of the island. I liked the multicoloured Dodos in the grounds. It only takes 30-60 minutes to look around. Well worth seeing.
  • The only natural history museum in Mauritius. Not very dynamic but very interesting nevertheless. The whale seems very artificial now, after all these years of painting and repainting.
  • A little gem that has a really good collection of local specimens of species still with us and many that, unfortunately, are no longer.
  • Rememdering my childwood
  • Very nice place to document yourself away from the noise and hot weather of the capital. Entery is free but there's no assistance at all.
