Tahiti Sights


Gauguin Museum and Botanic Gardens

Gauguin Museum and Botanic Gardens Review

These two sights are side by side. The museum has 25 small original works by the famous artist who lived in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands for the last 12 years of his life. The other major works are replicas, which can be a disappointment. On the upside, the gardens, which cover 340 acres and were created by American physics professor Harrison Smith in 1922, are beautiful with plenty of walking trails and great views over the lagoon.
