Discover Le musée historique et naval Mauritius

This old colonial residence turned-museum in Mahébourg (the island's former capital city) will enchant those who love treasure and pirate stories. Objects which once belonged to the famous privateer Robert Surcouf are displayed here. Another interesting thing to see in the museum is a bell found on the wreck of the Saint-Geran, the famous ship that inspired Bernardin de Saint-Pierre in the writing of his novel Paul and Virginie. Also worth seeing are the old porcelain plates and postcards showing different views of Mauritius.
