The Museum of Decorative Arts of the Indian Ocean (MADOI) is in Saint-Louis in the south-west of the island. It is located on an old estate, the Maison Rouge, the last coffee plantation, which dates back to the 18th century.
The museum deploys its rich collection of furniture, textiles, Chinese porcelain, artworks etc. into a varied schedule of temporary exhibitions. The MADOI also organises guided tours focussing on the historical, architectural and agricultural dimensions of the great coffee plantation in the area around the Maison Rouge. Tours on the historical, cultural and botanical history of Bourbon coffee (the original name of the island) are also offered.
Check out the MADOI's workshops and events on its website.
