Small museum that gives a decent overview of Fijian history. Friendly and helpful staff. But don’t expect too much.

Somewhat old fashioned approach to exhibits/story-telling should not detract from the quality and interest of some of the exhibits on display here. Very good gift shop, better quality and prices than you will find elsewhere in town.

A small collection of objects exploring the native, Indian and British history of Fiji. Adequate signage to give required background information.

Whilst small the content of the museum is absolutely fascinating! Loved the Masi section - amazing pieces of art. There is a cafe and ample seating and toilets available and air conditioning upstairs only. I would definitely return to see new exhibits!
