This is a very small but interesting place. Slip in here around noon, when you take your walking tour of Victoria. Nice and cool with lost to learn.

I visited the Museum on the 30/07/12 & the admission fee is only SCR 15.00, I was a little disappointed on entering when I noticed most of the information was in French & little English material to read, anyway the overall presentation & displays were good, clean spacious environment & friendly staff. You are able to purchase some small gifts... More

Compakt place with the History of the Island. The price is only 15 rupees (around 1 euro), for this you get an idea of how and what was happening on the island, what kind of flora and founa could be found on the islan then and now. Nice place to visit with some kids!

This museum presents general information about marine life in Seychelles. Very informative but cannot be compared to Museums in Europe.

We were lucky enough to go to the Seychelles for a week sailing on board a luxury 60 ft Catamaran sailing through the many islands that make up this amazing spot in the middle of the indian ocean.

Having read some of the other reviews of the Museum, I guess we are in the minority in stating that we enjoyed our visit. The entrance fee is a modest 15 Seychelles Rupees and we were encouraged to take our time and take photographs. The history of the Seychelles is fascinating and is on display throughout the museum. From the... More

The museum seems to be a wittness of the fact that the Seychelles have other priorities than their heritage. One can wonder that a so called prime tourist destination is treating its history like that.
