I remember when I was a child being fascinated by visits at museums. I was totally impressed by the stuffed dodo or the artifacts found in naval boats. Back then, we didn’t have much choice, as apart from the National museums of Port Louis and Mahebourg, not many other museums existed.

Today however, is a whole different story! Museums, of different sizes andĀ focus can be found: the Postal museum, the Bois Cheri tea museum, the Martello museum, the Textile museum,… and many more can be found all round the island!


Here are some of the museums you can visit in Mauritius:
