It was funny to see a museum with an exibition look like a european museum 30 years ago. The stories were interesting but presented in an old fashion way all though the part for children actually was quite hands on. It was very positive to meet the lady at the entrance. She was very proud of the museum and told... More

Sure it is small but, as we were on a cruise and had limited time, we enjoyed having these natural history exhibits all in the one place. The lady in charge was very friendly and co-operative and photography was allowed.

While this is not the biggest museum you will ever visit, it is worth the small entrance charge. A great range of very early paintings of the Seychelles give an idea of what it must have been like over 100 years ago.

Whilst the beaches on the Seychelles are the countrys obvious attraction, it saddened me to find both the capital's museums closed (or closed down) during my non-beach day, when I attempted to discover more about the countrys cultural heritage. The National History Museum, located in the National Library building has closed down completely, whilst for no apparant reason, their only... More

The museum of natural history is very informative and for those tourists who love science and nature, this is the perfect place for you. There is so much history on the flora and fauna and evolution that has made Seychelles distinctnctive. A must see for those wanting to learn more about the science behind the magic called Seychelles

If you have an hour to kill in Victoria,especially if you get caught in the rain, then visit the Natural History museum. Do not expect the Metroplitan of New York, or the Natural History Museum in London, this is more what an enthusiastic Victorian amateur has collected. Entrance is only SCR50 for non residents. There are a few old cabinets... More

I liked the authenticity of all the exhibits and the tales they tell. Lots to see and the descriptions are in French mostly, but as you wander around English text comes into play! It is a shame no photos are allowed for this could encourage the word to be spread and a sample of what is on offer. It only... More
