It was an amazing experience and was like taking a walk though history with the different exhibitions beginning from the Colonial era to the modern era. It was surprising though that we had to pay an entrance fee for a 15min walk through the whole Museum which is maybe why it was so empty, but it was a good trip none the less.
It's a work in progress. Compared to other museums in the world we still have a lot of work to do. But they also don't have the budgets as other museums in the world. Considering their limited resources they give a good introduction into Fijian heritage. Artifacts and models from the arrival of the first Fijian inhabits as well as the indentured system era and Fiji's colonial past. There is also a section for Fiji wild life and a trinket shop.
