Welcome to Musée De Tahiti Et Des Îles – Te Fare Manaha
Musée de Tahiti et des îles – Te Fare Manaha is a territorial public institution which opened its doors on the 7th March 1974 by decision of the Territorial Assembly. On the 30th March 1977, three out of four permanent exhibition rooms were opened to the public, before opening completely on the 30th June 1979.
At the time, the museum was part of the Polynesian Centre for Human Sciences (C.P.S.H – Te Anavaharau), alongside the archeological and oral traditions departments. When the C.P.S.H closed in 2000, the museum became an autonomous administrative public institution called “Musée de Tahiti et des Iles – Te Fare Iamanaha”.
Five years later, the museum took its current name “Musée de Tahiti et des Iles – Te Fare Manaha”, alluding to both the existing relationship between Tahiti and the other 118 islands of French Polynesia, and the Polynesian traditions it is anchored in as “house of hidden treasures”.
