What to do in Noumea?
The city abounds with things to do and beautiful places to visit – there’s something for all ages and all tastes. It’s a great opportunity to spend some time with family, by yourself or with friends.
In addition to the free explanatory leaflet handed to visitors, Témoignage d’un Passé Heritage Association, the New Caledonia Literature Centre and the Noumea City Authorities offer you a self-guided tour of the mansion. Using your smartphone or tablet, find out how the mansion was built, learn about the people who used to live here, explore the architectural details and plunge into the charms of a bygone era. A number of codes indicating points of interest are placed around the gardens and the interior of Maison Célières. Scan the codes during your visit to display information on your device.
