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. For Maison Eureka and beyond, use our Moka travel route builder to get the most from your Moka vacation.

  • 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.
