The 114-year-old Doctor's house, located on Curieuse, is an exemplary model of the Creole style of architecture. The building recounts the painful history of the island of Curieuse which was used as a quarantine for people with leprosy. The lovely style of architecture ensures that the house is cool all the time due to cross ventilation. The building is located close to the National Marine Park and is now a Historical Museum.
The museum is managed and protected by the Seychelles National Park Authority since 1979. A project of 900,000 SRE was used to renovate the roof, exterior and interior with wooden flooring. The remodelling included posters that provide information about the island's history and culture. After it's renovation, the upper floor was converted to a museum with colourful landscapes and sculptures of marine creatures. It is now considered as a National Monument of Seychelles.
