Papeete Town Hall (Mairie de Papeete) Tours

Papeete Town Hall (Mairie de Papeete)
This butter-cup yellow building is surrounded by palm trees, a pond, and manicured gardens. The Tahitian flag flies proudly atop Papeete Town Hall, while inside, crystal chandeliers, glass furnishings, historical artifacts, and pink Italian marble give the space an air of grandeur.

The Basics
Inaugurated in 1990, Papeete Town Hall (Mairie de Papeete) at Place Tarahoi was designed to replicate the 19th-century colonial design of Queen Pomare’s mansion, which once stood in the same spot. It’s where you'll find the mayor's office as well as many municipal staff working spaces. Check with your hotel to see if there are any events going on at Papeete Town Hall, as there are frequent art exhibits in the third floor gallery.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Papeete Town Hall is a must-see for architecture buffs and art lovers.
  • Entrance to the town hall is free of charge.
  • Don’t forget your camera for a photo op with the bright-yellow building.
How to Get There
Papeete Town Hall is centrally located and is directly inland from the cruise port—its within easy walking distance of just about anything in town. If you’re coming from further away, consider hiring a taxi.

When to Get There
The building is open to visitors from Monday to Friday from 9am-5:30pm, though it’s best to visit when the town hall is hosting an art or history exhibition.

Exploring Papeete
If you’re visiting the town hall, you’ll find plenty of other points of interest nearby. The waterfront is less than three blocks away, and you’ll pass the Tahiti Pearl Market and Papeete Market along the way. The ONO’U Tahiti Museum of Street Art, Queen Marau’s Old Bungalow, and the leafy Bougainville Park are all a short walk away.
