Vaipae'e Review

The island's main village, Vaipae'e is a short walk from the dock at Baie de Vaipae, a narrow bay between high cliffs.

Musee Communal. The village's main attraction is the Musee Communal, the oldest museum in the Marquesas. Its collections include mortuary canoes and various decorations such as bracelets, earrings, sperm whale teeth, and adzes. Local wood-carvers work and sell their wares here. The museum is also known as the Archeological Museum of Vaipaee. 92-60-13. Free, donations welcome. Open by request only.
