Musee de Tahiti et des Isles - It's not difficult to guess that this translates as the Museum of Tahiti and her Islands.
The museum is built on a very picturesque site with beautiful gardens, and great views to Moorea if you walk down to the end of the carpark.
The muesum itself is government owned, and I found the staff very helpful and friendly. The Museum tels how the islands were formed from a geological viewpoint. It also tells about polynesian customs and crafts and the story of Europeans discovering the islands.
Outside in one of the gardens is an exhibit of how they made a canoe out of a log, showing all the cutting that was required and what tools were used.
Address: Poste Kilometre (PK) 15.1 on the coastal road.
