  • Omg so so good. We nearly missed seeing Nomea. So glad the ship stopped on the way back to Brisbane. Absolutely worth a visit
  • A terrific museum that deals with the people of New Caledonia and those who past through during the war and how it affected life during and after the war, which goes beyond most war museums which focus on the conflict itself. Highly recommended and a steal at 200CPF. Plus that includes the use of a free audio guide! One of the best museums so far in my trip to Noumea.
