The Etpison is a small museum, but provides an excellent presentation of not only Palauan culture, but also regional culture. The gift shop is quite large and used to sell more locally made items, but has more recently shifted to mostly imported items which is...More

They have some interesting things, but also some stuff that are not from the islands. Like some ostrich eggs. Why? We spend about an hour, but we also did take time to look at every single object. The gift shop is quite nice and so...More

Etipson Museum has wonderful photography explaining the lives and customs of traditional people in Palau. The museum itself is elegant (don't miss the bathroom). TIP: Museum Admission is cash only ($10). The huge and fancy Gift Shop takes credit cards of course.
