“We enjoyed the Museum.....”

Seychelles Natural History Museum
Ranked #12 of 40 things to do in Victoria
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 April 2012

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 slavery period through to the colonization by the French and British and finally independence, the history of the Seychelles is on display if you choose to view the exhibits and read about the history. The history of people fighting for their country's independence is always compelling.

Loved the Seychelles National Museum!

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. But propably tourist a supposed to stay at the beach and spend the money in the overprized hotels and are not supposed to be interesete in a countries history. Go only there to complain on the state of the museum.

Don't waste your time here or plan a trip specially to Victoria to see the National Museum.

It is sad really, as this museum is an important destination for school children on eductational outings. Everything is worn out, old, badly outdated and simply looks like discarded / donated bits and pieces from other museums. It basically comes down to adequate funding and actually up-dating and expanding the exhibits to something more meaningful for both adults and children. Enjoy Victoria, the old simple creole architecture, colonial influences, the clock tower, the market, but skip the museum.
