The museum gave a good briefing of Palau's people and culture. The parrots at the entrance say "hello" to visitors. Lovely and cute!

It’s ok to see some of the artifacts but $10 entrance fee is too much. Gift shop is big and you can buy shells there. With Receipt, you can take shells out of country.

This museum seems to be more in depth of the culture verses the "National" history of the islands. The museum is quaint and looks newer. Very pleasant, quick reads on the displays. Loved the shell display. Very nice gift shop upstairs.
