The museum is about 1,500 sqm large and has a few vintage boats on display. Amazing to see boats, which very brave men used to tackle the Pacific in 19th century and before.

The very old steering paddles of the enormous ocean going outrigger canoes are seriously impressive, dwarfing the canoe that is also inside the building.

Although small, it is full of history! A great place to learn more about Fiji and its conception. Well organized and cheaper rates for volunteers and locals!

The Fiji Museum has some artifacts that are quite interesting. It is amazing for the first-time goer. Relatively small...but great surroundings with the park..some areas could be improved.

Great way to learn about settlement and war of Fiji. Many of the displays were actual boats, outfits, instruments and weapons actually used in early colonisation of Fiji. We had a guided tour which was wonderful as we got ask lots of questions and learn more than we would have just walking around ourselves.
