The building is amazing and worth a look for the architecture alone unfortunately the remainder exhibits where a little bit light on. Some school groups where on tours maybe they had a different experience. They do have organized tours might be good to check these...More
The architecture is spectacular, but... I was hoping to learn more about Kanak culture, and especially about relations with the colonizing French from the old days to the present, but while the "Kanak trail" was nice and presented some of the cultural touchstones, the whole...More

I have no idea how much a taxi would cost because I took the bus. If you take the bus number 42 from the central bus station (5 minutes walk from Place des cocotiers, everybody will show you the way). You ought to go to the last station, which is right at the entrance. The bus leaves every 30 minutes and opne way costs 210 francs.
