  • A small and interesting collection of life in the region from past years. The guilotine was the highlight for me.  more »
  • Located in the old "subsistence store" built in 1870 by convicts, the Museum of Bourail allows to discover or rediscover the history of New Caledonia and especially that of the village of Bourail. The various exhibitions allow to learn more about the past of the region and about the different communities that live there, especially during the period of the prison. You can also visit the period reenactments of a forge, a cheese factory, a bakery as well as a settler's lodging. The museum is very complete and informative and has signs that trace the major historical periods of the region. The tickets are sold to the tourist office which is located just under the museum and where the reception is very warm. A visit that I advise you absolutely when you move to Bourail.

  • The Museum of Bourail, historical and essential place, is located in the former "food store" from the prison. The tourist office shares this magnificent building and you'll find a lot of information on the region. The place looks small, but there is a lot to discover inside and outside the building. It is an essential step if you spend on Bourail to discover and better understand this town and its history. We appreciated the welcome and attention of the staff of the office of tourism. A shop with local products and the region is located on the ground floor (clean toilets).
