  • 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.
