Mauritius Postal Museum

Lonely Planet review

This interesting museum beside the central post office houses a mishmash of commemorative stamps and other postal paraphernalia from around the world. A new exhibit details the history of the Mauritius post using a rich assortment of photographs and artefacts. Of particular interest is the display about mail delivery to the remote dependencies of Agaléga and St Bandon. The museum shop sells replica first-day covers of the famous 'Post Office' stamps of 1847.
