There are all sorts of interesting critters living on the Seychelles islands, but there are some even more unusual looking ones that are sadly now extinct – you can see a selection from both these groups at the Seychelles National Museum, or at least their bones, or stuffed skin. One of the most memorable exhibits is the skeleton of an extinct crocodile. There's also the treasures recovered from several shipwrecks, and relics from the island's colonial past under British and French rule.

On Independence Ave, right by the Post Office. On Friday and Saturday the museum is closed in the afternoons.
