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.

We had a fun time learning about local culture and history at this museum and they have a nice gift shop that features locals only hand crafted goods.

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.

Right on main street, Koror, a well presented private collection and great gift shop. Worthwhile stopping place.

For a $10 admission, you get one floor of good exhibits and one floor of a gift shop. Its something to do if its raining.

loved the museum; truly wonderful displays that will delight. My disappointment centered around the museum selling seashells. What's up with that when you are in a Unesco World Heritage sight that should promote conservation and preservation which cannot happen when you sell seashells, etc.

It takes you about an hour. Very informative and modern with huge souvenir shop. Only one negative point: I cannot understand why foreigners are charged while locals go free. Is this South Africa 1970?

The belau national museum is more interesting, but it worth while if you have a reiny day in the island

I very much enjoyed my visit to the Eptisom Museum. It's small and easily viewed in a half hour. The displays are well marked and interesting and the museum has a very nice gift shop.

Good local museum for learning about the history and culture of Palau. We spent about an hour here. Easy to find on one of the main roads of Koror.
