Board an air-conditioned coach for a brief panoramic drive through Nouméa, stopping at the World War II Museum, which chronicles the impact of the War in the Pacific on the people of New Caledonia. Your 45-minute guided visit explains the strategy behind the presence of the American and Australian forces here, and the fully renovated venue showcases a collection of relics from the war.

Leaving the museum, you will head to Ouemo's Canon Viewpoint, and drive through some different neighborhoods named by the Americans -- the Motor Pool area, Receiving, and Orphanage Bay, where an anchor from the US Marines provides mute testament to another era.

You'll pass the American War Memorial before heading back to the ship.

Notes:

The museum is wheelchair-accessible. Tour does not operate on Sundays.
