The major attraction at this small museum – which was closed for much-needed renovations when we visited – used to be the famous reconstruction of a dodo. But with the museum closed, the dodo has been moved to Mahébourg's National History Museum where it may very well remain. What form the museum will take when it reopens remained unclear at the time of research.
