  • Architecture of the cultural centre is superb, the Park also with the traditional boxes, but we thought find more history on New Caledonia, while there are exhibitions, which lack soul, for my taste I said!

  • Space discovery and sharing with friends and family. Do to discover the richness of kanak culture and the islands of Oceania. Besides, it's not expensive at all and a bus go directly from the place of the coconut trees.

  • The grounds are beautiful, staff is very friendly and smiling, the galleries present exhibits that are interesting. Do at least once.

  • 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.
