Le Blue Penny Museum Mauritius

Discover Le Blue Penny Museum

Located on the Caudan seafront of Port-Louis, this museum tells the history of the island through an interactive trail exhibiting a mix of navigation maps, journal excerpts and old maps of the capital city posted next to present day photographs. The most important item in the museum, however, is the famous Blue Penny, the stamp representing the inauguration of Mauritian mail in 1847; only 500 were printed. There are currently just 5 left, each worth the modest sum of 832,000 pounds sterling!
