Musée Gauguin

Lonely Planet review

The Musée Gauguin is no great shakes; if you expect any original works by Gauguin, you’ll leave disappointed. Much of the text about Gauguin and his life is in English, though, and the natural setting is lovely. The museum gardens are home to three superb tiki from Raivavae in the Australs. Tiki do not like to be moved, and there are colourful stories about what happened to the men who moved these tiki here (they apparently died ‘mysteriously’ within weeks of the move).
