Maison Eureka, Mauritius

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.

  • An absolute MUST-SEE for every visitor of Mauritius. Beautiful British colonial house in a dreamlike landscape. A small guide (rather explanation - approx. 10min) is included in the price and should therefore be used. The waterfalls in the rear area of the outdoor area, you can look at, but do not necessarily have to. Way is not advisable for people with reduced mobility and certainly takes about 20 min for the round trip.
