  • A must visit in Noumea, the Tjibaou cultural center does not just looks amazing from the outside (thanks to the acclaimed architect), but it also has lots of interesting exhibitions around and inside the centre. The commute there might be slightly off-putting, but it actually isn't that far and once you got there you could easily spend up to 3 hours there to see all of the exhibitions. I personally enjoyed the walk around the garden, there are signs and descriptions about the religion, culture and livelihood of the local New Caledonian. Highly recommended!
  • Excellent exhibition about the Kanak culture, mixing the old history with new buildings in the old style. Very interesting for all ages. A guided visit would have been even better but they were fully booked.
