Tiny Museum, though has some interesting artifacts. Two floors and central location means convenient after meetings in the area.

Had hoped to visit this museum but it is currently closed for renovation. Best to check if it is open before planning a visit as there is precious little else to see in Victoria apart from the gardens,

Worth a visit, especially if you have young children. A relatively small museum but with a fair amount of information on Seychelles flora and fauna.

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.
