This state-of-the-art museum is situated on the Caudan waterfront in Port Louis, and presents visitors with fascinating perspectives on Mauritian history and art. A visit to see this museum's exquisite collection is a "must" for all!

Founded by The Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB) in November 2001, the Blue Penny Museum exhibits exceptional items that have been collected and preserved over the years by the MCB, an institution established since 1838.

From the start, visitors are guided through a wondrous collection on the first floor, in a room called "The Age of Discovery". Dedicated to the world of navigation, the room conjures up the adventures of those early pioneers who braved the oceans in a quest for unknown and mysterious lands. Model ships, charts and nautical instruments of various periods and origins reveal the progress of geographical and maritime knowledge.
