  • If the black pearls are a known product go your way, this museum is a pretext to sell you pearls. Comm all the visits of farms in French Polynesia are the traps "Doggie." Otherwise just to know what is the Black Pearl that is well done... but it's more exposure than a museum.

  • The museum has an excellent collection of pearls and tells a good story of pearl fishing. Lots to buy as well.  more »
  • Panels with explanations on the culture and history of pearls... But if you ask a question, we will not answer you unless you're buyers... but it's very expensive you will find cheaper elsewhere
