Fodor's Review

The Paul Gauguin Cultural Centre has no original works by the artist but does display reproductions of some of the paintings from his time in Polynesia. A replica of his thatched Maison du Jouir (House of Pleasure) has been rebuilt nearby; the outside is finished in sculpted wood panels, with copies of Gauguin's originals. There's also a craft center.
