  • We visited this on the same day as the cultural centre and found it very useful to pull everything together. Very reasonably price. 
  • This is pretty good compared to Fiji and Vanuatu as well as museums in the Museum with a decent size. New Caledonia, especially in Melanesia in the well, and cover some Micronesian and Polynesian contact with white explorers, history of the indigenous peoples of the South Pacific and especially art easier to understand and explain. Guides are not only available in France, and the English the pillows. Biggest problem was the admission itself. Is local money is no longer had had female ticket sellers without local money is all attitude and no admission testers have, they did. Husband and wife just finished looking at the other tourists who had heard this conversation happened, could not use a credit card, from the person took admission to give up, but said "we'll put", was paying the admission fee. Senior discount in person only 60 Pacific francs (probably about 60 yen) was was a godsend. It is unstoppable on the ticket, it totally unbridled flexibility. Also, say ticket sales rep from this senior discount, even if you don't, the person who helped us was the same as senior solo 200 said were overcharged for the Pacific franc.
