James Norman Hall Home#10 in Best Things To Do in Tahiti
James Norman Hall, a World War I army pilot, made a fortuitous friendship with Charles Nordhoff shortly after the war's end, and the pair began collaborating on novels together. In 1920, the writers moved to Tahiti together and wrote several novels including the celebrated "Mutiny on the Bounty." This museum, which was opened by Hall's family, contains a number of the author's belongings. You can also take a short staff-led tour of the house, which is an exact reproduction of Hall's home.
Recent visitors said bookworms and history lovers will enjoy this attraction, adding that the guides are helpful and knowledgeable. Travelers were also impressed by the verdant and colorful gardens that surround the home.
The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. You'll find it in the town of Arue, located just a few miles east of Papeete. Admission is about 600 French Polynesian Francs (about $6 USD). For more information, visit the James Norman Hall Home's official website.
