Paul Gauguin Museum

The famous French painter Paul Gauguin spent the last 12 years of his life in Tahiti and fittingly, the island sports a museum dedicated to his life and work. Visitors expecting to see original versions of his iconic Tahiti-period paintings will be disappointed, although there are some original sculptures, engravings and gouaches. The gift shop sells excellent prints. While in the area, a visit to the adjacent Harrison W. Smith Botanical Gardens is well worthwhile.
