First things first. Here’s a little fun fact for you: The Museum of Natural History is the oldest museum in Mauritius and ranks among the oldest ones of the Africa Continent! After recently undergone extensive renovations, the Natural History Museum has finally reopened its doors to the public, setting the tone for numerous cultural events you certainly want to indulge in.

The next ones are set to take place between 9.30 am to 12.30 pm  this Saturday 19th of October and the last one on the 26th October. Register here: and make sure you save the date!
