We were a little disappointed with the museum. It has an entrance fee of MRF50 (US$3.30), locals pay only MRF20 for adults and MRF10 (US$0.70) to use a camera without flash.
The building is quite spacious inside with a relatively small number of articles on display compared to the available space. Most of what we saw had been sourced from the Maldives, or was historically based.
There are further items on display on the 2nd floor, accessible by stairs or elevator.
If there had been other more interesting sites to visit we would not have bothered going to see the museum.
