Natural History Museum, Port Louis Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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

  • It is a small museum, a bit hard to find the entrance. It is free and has interesting information on the dodo.

  • A beautiful place to visit

  • 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.
