“small with mainly historical artifacts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Nice place. Small and has many items form way back. Displays could be made more interesting with better use of lighting and some technology.

“Not very interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

It's a combination of natural history, archeology, immigration, maritime, colonial time... But there is not many thing to see and the way they arrange and decorate make it really boring. If you need to collect information about Fiji please get in or when you can not find a place to visit in Suva.

“Small but fascinating museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Loved this place. So much of the history of Fiji. Well worth the walk to get there (only 20-30 mins) from city centre. Wide collection spanning so much of Fiji and so fascinating to the outsider. Didn't realise there was so much to learn and I'm grateful to the curators and staff.

“No to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

When I see passenger of a liner walking down Victoria Parade, most times I stop them and tell them about the Museum, its down there I say, not to be missed, it will inform, tell you about early Fiji and it is nicely placed in Thurston Gardens.
The museum can make an otherwise drab town more rewarding.
I should no I live and work here.

“Basic, simple but fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Fiji Museum rarely fails to interest visitors - I live in Suva and always take visitors there or recommend they go. I'm a regular too.
It's real basic, nothing fancy, but the history and the explanations (again basic!) are very interesting. On entry it is simple enough and nothing amazing, but as you enter the labyrinth of rooms you find its real appeal. There are nooks and crannies throughout the building so you never feel that you really saw everything... that you kind of need to investigate to find all the information the museum hides.
