The Musée de Tahiti et des Îles ("Museum of Tahiti and the Islands"), Tahitian Te Fare Manaha ("the Museum"), is a Polynesian ethnographic museum in the village of Puna'auia on Tahiti.

The museum was founded in 1974 to conserve and restore Polynesian artifacts and cultural practices. It has signed cooperation agreements with the Musée du quai Branly,[1] which has greater resources for staging public expositions.
