Port Louis in detail

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 non-existent), but most make families feel welcome. Of the two main attractions that will appeal to kids (around eight years old and up), the Natural History Museum & Mauritius Institute was closed for renovations at the time of writing; the other is 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.
