This building is quite beautiful and a great example of what colonial Noumea would have looked like. The building is only open certain hours so make sure that you visit when it is open. Otherwise, just a quick look from the outside.
The Bernheim Library is a beautiful example of French Colonial architecture in Noumea. The grounds and buildings are well worth a quick visit when heading up to the cathedral or the Museum of New Caledonia from Place des Cocotiers.
this library contains a lot of books , but most are in french.
Nethertheway the building by itself is worth a glance, as its conception is by Eiffel, the same engeener who imagined the Eiffel tower in Paris. Entrance is free.
