  • Good amount of information and artefacts packed into a small building. A lot of activities for kids. Plenty of parking outside and right next to a port for an ocean view.
  • I really enjoyed this place especially the story of the French exploration of the Pacific. All the signs were in English as well as French so that is a plus. Overall this is an excellent museum to visit.
