Musée de la Perle

Museum in Pape'ete

This pearl museum was created by pearl magnate Robert Wan with aims of luring visitors into his glamorous shop. It’s a worthwhile, small and modern museum that covers all facets of the pearl-cultivating business. Explanations of the displays are in English, and ogling Monsieur Wan’s gorgeous, albeit uncommonly pricey, jewellery collection is almost as fun as the museum.
