Paul Gauguin Museum

The famous French painter, Paul Gauguin, spent the last 12 years of his life in Tahiti and fittingly, the island sports a museum dedicated to his life and work. Among the exhibits Visitors expecting to see original versions of his iconic Tahiti-period paintings will be disappointed although there are some original sculptures, engravings and gouaches. The gift shop sells excellent prints. While in the area, a visit to the adjacent Harrison W. Smith Botanical Gardens is well worthwhile.

Money

The unit of currency in French Polynesia is the French Pacific Franc (XPF), divided into 100 centimes. The exchange rate is fairly stable as it is linked to the Euro. Banks throughout the islands are open mainly on weekdays only and are the best place to change foreign currency; rates of exchange are not as good at hotels. There are ATMs on a few of the islands, but shouldn't be relied upon. Most hotels and resorts will exchange travellers cheques in US$ or Euros, and credit cards and US currency is readily accepted on the main islands. Tourism taxes are levied for accommodation and activities.

Open daily 9am to 5pm
