Visit the Blue Penny museum at Le Caudan Waterfront
in Port Louis to see two of the rarest, most fascinating and most
expensive stamps in the philatelic world.
In September 1847, Mauritius was the first British
colony and fifth country in the world to issue postage stamps. The
one-penny orange and two-pence blue stamps were then engraved and
printed locally by Joseph Osmond Barnard.
And almost a century and a half later, it is
our privilege today to showcase the world famous blue penny stamps.
To get to the Museum, easy parking is available at the Caudan Waterfront, by the way, it's
the parking lot which you will be using during your visit to Port Louis. Tariffs are reasonable.
