Travel with Children

None of Port Louis' restaurants or museums make any special efforts to accommodate children (most restaurants will have a high chair or two to hand, but baby-change facilities are almost nonexistent), but most make families feel welcome. The two main attractions that will appeal to kids (around eight years old and up) are the Natural History Museum & Mauritius Institute and the Blue Penny Museum. Otherwise there's a ramshackle playground just west of the Mauritius Postal Museum, and next to it there's a kiosk that sells small versions of the Mauritian national flag.
