“Should be in Top 5”

Musee de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale
Ranked #4 of 76 things to do in Noumea
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 June 2018 via mobile

We went here today. They have the self guided tours in English or French. It’s well laid out and let’s you learn the history of New Caledonia during this time. It’s makes you very grateful for what we have now. An absolute bargain at 200franc per person.

This is very interesting and a well organized representation of Noumea and World Wars. A interesting audio helps guide u around as all signs are in French. We thoroughly enjoyed the displays and it is well worth a visit. The receptionist was most helpful and informative on our visit.

Mostly in French but a brilliant depiction of the part New Caledonia played in Second World War. Shows all about the natives and their interaction with US and Australian troops.

We visited here when we had some time to spare and I am glad we did. The museum although small and predominately just in French allows you to have a better understanding of Noumea's history and involvement in WW2. We particularly liked this as we found that most other tourist destinations did not talk about New Caledonia's history.
Whilst most is only in French there was more than enough in English to gather an understanding and to enjoy your visit. In the end we only spent probably about an hour but it was extremely enjoyable.
It has an extremely low entry price, only costing us equivalent of $4aud for two people. for this reason I would definitely suggest making a short visit to this museum if in Noumea.
