To know all the events dedicated to the "Nights at the Museum" elsewhere in New Caledonia
La Perouse collection website is a gateway for all researchers ans historians interested in the greatest French expedition of the 18th century. Discover this prestigious collection through this website thought and created by the Assocation Salomon in partnership with the Maritime Museum of New Caledonia.
In 1968, divers from the French Navy discovered the wreck of the Seine, a French naval corvette which foundered near Pouebo on the East coast of New Caledonia in 1846.
The Museum has set up an exhibition designed to take the visitor step by step through the sequence of events which led to the presence of this French man-of-war off the coast of New Caledonia seven years before France officially took possession of the territory, and the top-secret mission that the French government had entrusted to François Leconte, her Captain.
