Behind Tohua Papa Nui (the Gauguin Cultural Center), this hangarlike museum recounts the singer's life. From the rafters is suspended his Beechcraft Twin Bonanza airplane, Jojo, which he used to go back and forth to Tahiti, often on missions of mercy. You will see displays of traditional Marquesan arts and crafts as well. The shop sells CDs and tapes of his albums. The Brel and Gauguin cultural centers share a ticket office.
