  • This museum is dated, dusty, but he has so much charm. Its location is convenient and ca actually advises a crossing point during a visit to Port Louis. His garden is nice with some very attractive artists dodos.

  • 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.
