The Andafivaratra Museum, Antananarivo

The Andafivaratra Museum, Antananarivo (must see)

The Andafivaratra Museum is a true heritage complex, located at the top of the Haut-Ville neighbourhood. The palace belonged to Prime Minister Rainilaiarivony, who was smart enough to marry three heir queens in a row and virtually rule the country from behind the righteous throne. It is a beautiful pink palace built in Baroque style. The furniture, portraits and other things that belonged to the king and his queens (Queen Ranavalona, Queen Victoria) are still there. The exhibits are described in English and French. There is also an immense throne, a crown and jewels and other valuable objects and clothes that can be seen.
