  • Magnificent reproductions with mannequins of pearl culture in French Polynesia and in the world. The historical side is well treated.

  • You can find cheaper pearls on the other islands (even in Bora Bora). The Museum is, however, an attraction that is worth to be visited, especially when one considers that there is no much to do in Papeete.

Where to stay in Papeete

The best selection of hotels in Pape'ete is concentrated in the vicinity of the docks--a vibrant area with plenty of nightlife, and in close proximity to the bustling market. Options range from pricey international hotels to very affordable bed and breakfasts and family-run boarding houses. A little farther afield (and much higher up the price range), luxurious five-star resorts offer private beaches, pools, and bungalows above the gently lapping waves of the lagoon.
