The art and artifacts of Etpison were astounding. We were swept away by the collections. Recommend highly!

Small museum which made the most of the history of Palau, including related info from the Philippines, Afghanistan, etc. 2nd floor gift shop was unique.

This was another small but very interesting museum. It cost another $10, and again, we felt the entry fee was fair.

Surprisingly to us, there was not recent history info about what the... More

it is important I believe that you attempt in your travels to get some understanding of local culture and those who have gone before you in this land, a visit here allows you to do that for sure, very worth while the effort to come and see this magnificent structure and meeting house.

The museum was a pretty nice museum. There weren't many people at the museum when we visited, so the workers there gave us a quick tour of the place. It's a good place to learn about the Palauan culture.
