  • I agree with the others, nothing indicates it's closed until you go right up to the doors and see the A3 sign on the door. It really needs a banner. Very poor customer service.  more »
  • Quality welcome in this place that inspires calm and serenity. Photo and temporary exhibitions always interesting and attractive set design. Rich Media Library Fund. Conferences, shows and various activities.

  • 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.
