  • As mentioned in some other reviews, the building itself is in need of some love and maybe a vacuum and wipe down. BUT the exhibits that are there are informative and some are strange and fascinating. ...  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.
