An interesting enough museum but not sure I would go out of my way to it. Lots of youth hanging around outside. Preferred the other three museums

This museum is small but a real treasure-house. A wonderful collection of artefacts from the region, well curated. The interpretive notes are in French (of course) and most with an English translation. Free entry which was a plus. Well worth a visit.

Do make the time to visit the museum. The entrance price is very affordable. The exhibits are very visual and a lot of the info cards have English translations

The museum building would need a freshening up, but the collections are superb, both for their aesthetic quality and for the insight they give on Melanesian culture. Noumea must-see.

A good day time attraction, which is reasonably priced. Although you won't spend the day here, if you like learning about local culture and history you will find this the place to be.

We visited this on the same day as the cultural centre and found it very useful to pull everything together. Very reasonably price.

If you like culture then you must go here. This has 2 floors of native artifacts such as canoes, huts and details of wood carving used for housing. Very clean and in English. Get a seniors discount over 60 yr old!
