As before, this is new and part of a commercial area which spoiled my memories of 30 years ago when the Seychelles were so quiet.

This is a one man band set up, (Steve), he welcomes you, does the tour and gives you a fresh fruit punch at the end. If you want to see a few fruit bats up close and a giant tortoise it's great. Steve will also tell you about the vast array of plants and there use in medicine and whitch... More

The place has a very interesting story and is part of the Iland past. however, it is titally worn down, a pitty. Its location is wonderfull, close to the beach and "source d'Argent' a unique beach.

We stopped over at the "Praslin Museum" to experince some heritage. We got out of our car next to an old house and three cages. In these cages were bats, guinnea pigs and tortoises. A man approached us and demanded we pay R180 so view these animals, we said that we were there to see the museum he then demanded... More

this little museum has potential. if only more time was spent on organizing it further. the staff were very nice and knowledgeable, but it is somewhat of a racket at $15 US/person. the highlight was feeding the fruit bats.

You're told a lot about medicinal plants and live on the Seychelles. You can feed a fruitbat. But it's terribly expensive (do negotiate on the price). There are no kameleons or black parrots. You pay 10 times the price of a normal state-owned museum.
