  • It is a simple and fast enough to do Museum. Very interesting concerning the Kanak culture. Even though for me it is not the most beautiful, still to be discovered.

  • Value for money Museum. At 200 New Caledonia francs it was reasonable and showed a lot of their history and of the Pacific countries.
  • Beautiful collections, and a warm welcome. Some activities are organized throughout the year...

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.
