Blue Penny Museum

Blue Penny Museum

The Blue Penny and the Red Penny, which feature Queen Victoria’s face, date from 1847 and are the first two Mauritian stamps. They are among the rarest stamps in the world, housed in the museum that bears its name. A beautiful colonial home built in dark stone is home to other treasures — not just for avid philatelists but for anyone interested in the fascinating history of Mauritius. The Blue Penny Museum shop is stocked with unique souvenirs and gifts.
