  • Only museum worthy of the name! Certainly old and aging, but the information is there! It takes about 1 h / 1 h 30 to go. Decent rate. However, I found it lacking some themes that could be addressed, but Polynesia is so rich culturally and geographically I imagine that there must have choices. Part of the Museum, on the edge of the ocean (the coast is between 2 lagoons, waves flowing on the dike there), the grounds are very nice! To do.

  • Must visit for a first trip to Polynesia! The Museum offers several rooms ranging from the formation of the Islands and its settlement to the culture and history. Lot of information, this museum is very rich and very interesting. The walk in the Gardens closing in beauty tour. All for a very affordable price (600 Pacific franc per person). I highly recommend!
