Small low budget little place but worth taking the look. Cheap entry and lovely to get cool. Sure the money will go to helping improve the exhibit too. Plenty on history of the area and the animals and creatures that inhabit. Keen focus on conservation and it clearly does a lot of work with local groups and children based on the upstairs exhibits and focuses on trying to ensure people respect and conserve the natural world.

Some fossils, models and real examples of the natural world.

Curious and traditional little building. We enjoyed it even for a 40 minute wander we both learned a thing or two and we're glad we contributed if even a little.

Came across by chance when the wife noticed it. The aircon was so cold on a hot day small entrance fee and not that big but if it supports local tourism I'm all for it

It's right on the Main Street. Cost only 15 SCR for adults, children under 12 free. It's true that in 30 minutes you will be done but we enjoyed the shark collection, the coco de mer information, the interactive displays for my son. Good to support the museum. Staff friendly. Great if wet rather or you have time to fill in.

We visited this museum as we felt sure that an island with such diverse natural history would be very interesting. We were very disappointed with the very limited displays which were very poor. Although the entrance fee was very small, this is one of the worst museums we have ever visited. It needs a serious revamp.

If you have come to Victoria and have some interest in the historical or archaeological stuff, you should try this. The entry fee is a meagre 15 SCR and it won’t take a long time. Even if you stroll through, you should be done in about 20 minutes. It’s not a must-see place as such, so if you are on a tight schedule, you can skip it. But, tourists mostly come for half a day in Victoria, and time runs surprisingly slowly in Seychelles, so it’s not that difficult to give 15 minutes to this.
