Naval Museum

Now converted into a museum, this 18th century colonial house was previously used to tend to the French and English wounded during the great battle of Grand Port early 19th century.

The museum has three floors, two of which are accessible to the public. On the ground floor, wreckages of battle ships, original cannon and cannon balls, paintings, swords and weaponry and a collection of relief maps are being showcased.

Mahé de Labourdonnais' four-poster bed, two palanquins and wooden sedan-type chairs, a collection of coins, curios, model sailing ships and early maps, labelled in French and English are displayed on the first floor.
