  • A very precious institution to have, Suva is lucky to have its own public museum catering to the capture of natural and Fiji and Pacific history. Staff are very helpful and informative of the collections and the collections themselves are super interesting and educational. Always great for a weekend visit and the cafe they're serves great meals and good coffee.
  • A very nice place to go for field trips for students who study social science or history. Someone truly said that history repeats itself.
  • Although small in comparison to most museum due to under funding by Government. The museum is well kept and artifacts are well stored too. My kids and I enjoyed the visit. If you are reading this please support the museum by visiting them. Thank you.
  • It helps you understand the roots of fiji and its history it was nice experience and it has a coffee shop as well as a sovereign shop it has the canoes and the remains of bounty and the story of the girmitiyans and other nice historic collections and it isn't too big also it's easier to finish soon it does have a entry fee of 2 dollars but it's worth a visit
  • The museum has but only a fraction of the richness of the Fijian History. It is however home to certain priceless artifacts of Fiji's unique culture. While there may be no tour guides available during the journey, the museum however has descriptions placed against the pieces to give the visitor a brief idea. They also have a gift shop which has books and souvenirs for customers to buy.
