    Museum discovered during the 2017 heritage days. Interesting thematic tours and exciting workshops, accompanied by a lovely staff. Do and redo... And the gardens are superb to allow children to run and play!

    Super interesting and indispensanle to learn and understand Polynesian history and culture. Little attendance, which allows to be quite quiet. A nice Park located by the sea.
