  • a stop to discover l ' history of the Pearl in French Polynesia. a museum worthy of musse tusseaud in London

  • Museum Shop dedicated to the culture and history of the Pearl. In fact a shop. Interesting to visit but to complete with a visit to a pearl farm.

  • The history of pearls is represented in several elaborate showcases. Beads were always popular and due to their rarity, a very precious commodity. Since the Pearl farms are produced, beads in large quantities and high quality are widely available. The method of making beads with the help of a nucleus is discussed in detail. The company "Robert Wan" is the market leader in Tahitian pearls and shows the current collection in addition to the Museum exhibits. However you here can tell nothing of the price declines, which Pearl prices down for about 10 years.

  • The Robert Wan Pearl Museum is more here! It is on boulevard Pomare IV just before the Protestant Church.
