Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie Reviews
Glad we visited this museum. Not many exhibits but quite educational about Kanak culture and colonization more »
Triste et décevant concernant l'entretien surtout concernant la case extérieur et le jardin Je n'ai pas retrouvé le musée de mon enfance. Les alentours face au musée le Mwaka dégradé, pue la pisse et ... more »Sad and disappointing about the maintenance especially regarding the outdoor box and the garden I did not find the museum of my childhood. The surroundings in front of the museum the degraded Mwaka, stinks of piss and a real throat cut. Don't want the place:-(
Easy to locate, the entry fee was affordable though I was expecting something bigger! Good place to learn the different cultures of Polynesian countries. They also have 8 giant comic books for children so they won't get too bored.
If you visit Noumea, a visit to the museum is a must. Centrally located (near McDonalds) the visit was well enjoyable.
