Fiji Museum is good to visit, but lacks atmosphere, and many exhibits. Much could be done to talk about the old days in Fiji, and it is looking very tired.

The boat display was good but found little else of interest. I am sure Fiji has more to display and more history to tel but where is it?

Well worth a visit to Suva to see,then go for walk through the Fiji Museum gardens to the fantastic Grand Pacific Hotel where they make very good coffee. NB The Museum is closed on a Sunday

I found this museum very interesting as I believe that it is the only one in the whole island and has a lot of interesting things like history, culture, wildlife collections, potteries, Weill scale boats and cannibalism. The gift shop are bit pricey!

First room seems to be the only one. The other rooms are hidden after a forced passage through a store selling tourist items at very high prices. This is the TRAP. After the store, the visit continue with very interesting rooms and objects. I spent to much time in the first room thinking that it was the only one. Then,... More

The museum is clearly in need of a funding boost, but it is jam packed full of interesting artefacts and well worth a visit. If you like to read the little shop has a good selection of history books.

Set in a beautiful garden, this simple but well maintained museum has a fantastic drua (wood traditional catamaran) on exibit. The weapons and cannibal artifacts will capture your imagination.

The museum houses an extensive archaeological collection dating back 3,700 years and relics of Fiji's indigenous cultural history. Also on display is the rudder of the HMS Bounty of mutiny fame.

We visited the museum on our trip to Suva, and were positively surprised. Based on the reviews, we thought the museum would be super small, but it actually covers the history of Fiji quite well and has some information of the flora and fauna too. The seven dollar entry fee was very reasonable and the building has a nice feel... More

Liked seeing how the traditional boats were constructed, and fascinating to learn more about the old weapons and cannibalism - even a photo!
