Maison Eureka, Mauritius

3.9
Step into the country's colonial history at Maison Eureka, an authentic 19th-century home now housing a museum. Built in 1830 and serving as residence to several British and French aristocrats throughout the next century, the house features a long veranda in an attractive European style, while its surrounding grounds offer good examples of regional plants, such as palm and mango trees. Converted to a museum in 1986, the estate displays period artifacts, documents, and trinkets in its colonial-style interior. Browse the collection of antique maps, Chinese and Indian treasures, and colonial technology--such as the unusual shower.

  • We visited Maison Eureka and the choice was either 300 rupees entrance pp or lunch a 800 rupees and free access to the garden and the house. The lunch was delicious and more than enough the Entourage (the house) beautiful and the route to the waterfall funny. Or you go for lunch and the rest will get you there.

  • Interesting and nice colonial house near Port Louis. Tours are also available. There's also a restaurant with nice food. Also make sure to visit the waterfalls in the valley next to the house. This is actually an amazingly beautiful piece of nature.
  • Amazing place. Nice place to spend half a day
