  • 这是当地著名的文化体验活动。主要是为了保留下来当代土著部落的文化。建筑特点明显,里面的图书馆资料介绍了各种有关的文化氛围。  more »
  • The cultural centre is a must see as long as we want to be interested in kanak culture. The architecture of the centre is unique in its kind, and the Park is very nice. The exhibits and explanations are very well done. A very good time out of the beaches and the crowd!

  • Truely an architectural marvel and a must visit while in Nouméa. Easy to get to and from by bus. Excellent insight into Kanak and broader Pacific culture.
  • Stunningly beautiful architecture, and an excellent and informative cultural center. It takes some effort to get here, but it's a must-do in Noumea.
  • Fascinating insights into Kanak culture and the structure is worth a visit in its own right. New Caledonia could make much more of this. Definitely a highlight of the trip.
  • Great place, great location but somewhat a bit limited. I was expecting much more. There is such a potential, it could be much more developed.
  • Wow what a great place to visit this is an amazing experience. I love the incorporated culture's they show. Learnt heaps here. It is a beautiful culture they have.
