I enjoyed visiting this museum. It gives some really great information on what you can expect from the rest of Fiji.

A must see whilst in Suva. Very interesting to see all the exhibits and read the history. Photos are allowed, which is great to remember it all when you get home. Clean toilets too!

It's a small museum just outside the main centre of Suva. There's not too much there but has a good variety of exhibits showing Fiji's past.

great little museum... you get a pocket sized history of the place we spent about an hour in there really interesting. Shabby old building poorly displayed with horrid lighting but that just em and my snobby western views. The museum does a great job on an obviously tight budget... congrats to Suva for keeping it running

This is one of the "must do" spots in Suva. Well presented, not so big to be overwhelming, and really, really interesting. Also a nice walk from the main part of town

The family all met in Fiji for a reunion and this was one of the places we visited. A lot history and now I know how the Indians came and settled in Fiji. Will bring my kids here someday to see their roots.

Enjoyable, with impressive double-hull canoe and history of voyaging. And ancient weapons for the kids!

The museum is compact and easy to see in 1 to 2 hours. Remember to visit the exhibits on both sides of the gift shop and the area upstairs. It is easy to miss some areas. Photos were allowed which made it easy to have a copy of some of the lengthier descriptions for later review.
