Only small, but very interesting to wander around, see displays of weapons, implements, boats, weaving and incredible stories of cannibalism, tribal beliefs and superstitions. Not a particularly cheap exercise for a family, but worth the visit.

You can walk this through pretty quickly as place isn't too big. You find history from the fishing days migrants from Samoa to their participation in the World War.

Like a museum's around the world it hosts a small collection of what is of historical/cultural value to the country. Hosted in a small building, it holds quite a vast amount of items and was worth the visit. Kids will love the big Bilibili that takes up a good portion of the front entrance. We were also lucky to have... More

This was well worth the visit. Learning all about the history of Fiji from when they came to First Landing to the present. The British influence and there way of life. A visit when in Suva is a must. Great value

Great displays of Fijian artefacts and history inclusive of Indo-Fijian history. A small display for the nature lovers is upstairs above displays of clothing, weapons and timelines of habitation in the islands. I found the display a little skewed in the chronology but overall well worth the few dollars spent for entry.

This is a very old museum with great facts and tools in it! It is surrounded by a beautiful garden called thurston gardens and within the gardens are benches and a play ground for children. The museum is full of old artefacts and great information! Worth a visit

Although the displays and the building reflect a lack of money, the variety of displays and the sense of local history provided is a very good way to browse when in the area. The few air-conditioned rooms are a bonus.

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. Our taxi driver, Hussein, who also acted as our guide explained some historic facts about Fijian Cannibal history and the museum had numerous cannibalistic artefacts on display,... More
