A museum like no other...
an experience not to be missed
The Praslin Museum is the only of its kind in the Seychelles. It is a private-owned museum which aims at exhibiting the Seychellois traditions & culture in its purest form.
We have a substantial collection of traditional artefacts on display such as traditional musical instruments.
The museum is also proud of its fully functional traditional kitchen, the only one remaining in the Seychelles, from which you can enjoy the finest cuisine.
We organize a variety of activites for our visitors. You are encouraged to feed our domesticated fruitbats, participate in the grilling of breadfruit, dehusking of coconut, traditional games for children, witness live tapping of palm wine & participate in the preparation of creole cuisine, amongst many other traditional activities which will give you a genuine taste of the our traditions.
The museum also has a vanilla, patchouli and citronelle plantation and one of the most complete of endemic and medicinal plants of Seychelles. Thus, we are more than capable of scientific support for researchers and nature-lovers.
Besides the attraction of our domesticated fruitbats, you can also see tortoises, blue pigeons
and diferrent birds of the Seychelles, including endemic blackparrots which come to feed in our bilimbi trees.
So what are you waiting for?
Come discover the traditional beauty of the Seychelles the Praslin Museum way.
