Located at the corner of Vandeermeersch and Reverend Lebrun Streets in Rose Hill, the former residence of the founder of ABC Group, Sir Jean Moi Lin Ah-Chuen, was converted into a memorial in 2009 by his heirs.
The memorial centre pays tribute to this iconic figure of the Chinese community in Mauritius, and allows us to learn more about his life as an entrepreneur and politician, and his social involvement.
A place laden with history, this colonial house received visits from foreign dignitaries, ministers and other politicians of this era, including the Father of the Nation, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam.
Antique wooden furniture, a Chinese carpet that comes from another era, various trinkets and ornaments, as well as photographs can be seen alongside corridors inside the house. Each object in the house has its own story, and narrates the milestones and historical moments that marked the life of the man whose face appears on the Rs 25 banknote.
The memorial centre is open for guided visits from Monday to Friday between 9.30 am and 2.30 pm, on Saturday from 9.30 am to 11.30 am, and on Sunday from 9 am to 11 am.
