    Collections are beautiful with however a need to refresh the museography and e enforce schedules by staff: half an hour before the "official" closure we start to make you understand that you must leave: quite rude! temporary exhibitions are always interesting

    beautiful museum that speaks of the Kanak culture but also of the other cultures of the Pacific. You really take the time to visit because the pieces and works are really nice, most of this museum the price is really attractive. Don't miss to understand a bit about the history and culture of the kanak people.

Where to stay in Noumea

There are few budget options in Nouméa, but a good selection of mid-range hotels. Most are concentrated in Anse Vata, at the southernmost tip of the peninsula, where you'll find palm-fringed beaches and plentiful bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. For something a little more central, consider one of the comfortable hotels around Place Des Cocotiers. The picturesque square is close to the marinas and cathedral, and makes a great base from which to explore the city.
