  • This has been rated a very good place but the Musuem is currently closed for refurbishment.
  • I didn't get a chance to go in since it is under renovation which I only know when I am there. So please double check if it reopens when you go there.
  • Renovation is taking way too much time thus I wasn't allowed in. I'm neutral so far.
  • 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.
  • This probably is the smallest museum I ever been. But the contents is great. I learned a lot from this trip. Worth
