The Robert Wan Pearl Museum
“The Pearl is a gem, the Robert Wan Pearl Museum is its story,” Robert Wan
If you want to learn more about the Poe Rava (the local name for the Tahitian cultured pearl), a visit to the World’s first museum devoted to pearls and the Tahitian cultured pearl is a must. THE ROBERT WAN PEARL MUSEUM provides a comprehensive guide to the history and legends of pearls, crossing different cultures and civilizations.
Visitors to the museum learn how the pearls are grafted and can see a collection of the world’s most beautiful cultured gems. A highlight of the collection is the largest round Tahitian cultured pearl in existence: a 26mm baroque-shaped Tahitian Silver (grey), of AAA quality and weighing 8.7 grams. Fittingly, the name of this pearl is “Robert Wan”.
