  • Glad we visited this museum. Not many exhibits but quite educational about Kanak culture and colonization  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.
