I think they missed the point with this centre. Whilst I found it quite interesting, most of the inside displays centred around the French occupation and migration to the island. The real cutural experience was the walk outside and the reconstructed village. We caught the bus there and back which is probably the cheapest way to go, but for the... 更多
I didn't know what to expect, but I love exotic places and exotic spaces, and the Tjibaou Cultural Centre has all of that in spades. We all know this is one of the great architectural designs of the World, from the drawing board of Renzo Piano. But it sits so well in the landscape it is just sublime. After alighting... 更多
The one room that was excellent was the first room that explains about Kanak life. Thankfully I speak and can read French (with a little difficulty) but my husband cannot. There was no English translations at all. The rest of the content was disappointing, but the building is excellent
Catch bus 40 from the bus station and ensure it's a fine day for outside photographs. Still plenty to see and read about inside the centre. Can purchase lunch and coffee.
Amazing building whatever you think of the the exhibits. I didn't learn that much about the canuk culture as it appeared that it was based around the european settlement and the time of the penal colonies - it appears that this would be the time when the culture started!! Such a missed opportunity for championing the native culture of the... 更多
Take a bus from the bus station in central Noumea right to the cultural centre. It's an amazing building with art and history exhibits and it's a lovely walk through the grounds.
The Jean-Marie Tjibaou Cultural Centre designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano and opened in 1998 is the icon of the Kanak culture and contemporary Kanak architecture and a world class piece of architecture. It is a must see!!! The Centre is located on Tinu Peninsula, approximately 8 kilometres northeast of the centre of Nouméa, the capital of New Caledonia, celebrates... 更多
So much to see and learn. Found everything really interesting and the art was beautiful. The highlight was seeing the homes that the natives lived in.
Easy to taxi from Anse Vata- also a bus ( runs less frequently in weekends). Admission charges are generous for olders and young folk, and not much for those in between. Great collection of pacifica art, artist collaborations and other exhibitions. Really enjoyed the Kanak village in the gardens. Worth a trip and can imagine the guided tour would really... 更多
huge number of displays and an absolute must see/visit. allow ideally at least 4 hours to be fair.Imagine the better option would be to allow at least one day or preferable a day and a half
We had lovely english speaking kanak guide who really loved talking about her culture. Beautiful carvings and displays. The centre building is a blend of airconditioned and open air. There are lovely undercover walk ways with areas to sit and have a coffee or meal if you wish. Just a warning the staff get busy in the cafe and you... 更多
We were fortunate to have a knowledgeable local Guide who explained life in a village. The fale were impressive and the galleries inside are worth spending a lot of time in. Unfortunately, we were on a tour so couldn't stay anywhere near the amount of time that I wanted to stay. I will visit this again.
Although the architecture is most unusual and quite striking (typical of Renzo Piano), we found the exhibits not as interesting as we had hoped. Perhaps we made the mistake of just wandering through the centre on our own. Being from Australia, our knowledge of the French language is extremely limited and only a few of the descriptive plaques have English... 更多
The Tjibaou Cultural Center in Noumea, New Caledonia is an architecturally interesting set of buildings. The buildings house different things, such as a library, art exhibits, wifi café, a chronology of events, etc. One of the exhibits shows how the Cultural Center buildings are surrounded by the barrel like façades. The grounds are peppered with carvings and statues of the... 更多
