A short, albeit steep walk from the centre of Vila. We wandered past the Aussie High Commission - a bit cool if you're Australian. Great water views on the way. A beautiful centre. Our kids (5 and 8) also loved it. Not too big to...More

Abit of a disappointment if this is the national museum because needs to move in the modern age. Some of the items are very interesting but there is no time line to when things happened.

Great improvement on little old museum in town with some really interesting exhibits for what is still a small museum but full of many things I hadn't previously seen

Whilst the museum can look a little tired, it comes alive with Edgar the guide, who transfixed us with his stories, sand drawings and flute playing. There is an amazing, rich Melanesian culture within the museum and you get a good insight with a visit....More

Hey there! I'm a current volunteer at VKS. It's 1000 vatu or $10USD for general admission, 1500 if you'd like a guide (he does all of the sand drawing, flute playing, etc)....definitely worth the extra 500 vatu!
