A glimpse into Fiji's history and a little bit more

well laid out museum with details of the cannibal days of the islands to the first settlers and relevant historic events - and I would recommend visitors to Suva to try and visit

I do love this museum but it needs a lot of work as it does seem like its falling apart in some parts of the building- I hope a lot is done to save what is a lovely little hub of our rich history here in Fiji.

Do not leave Suva without a visit to this ancient history museum. Pretty cool with old artefacts and a history of how Fiji came to be ... Also a good place to be if the unpredictable Suva rainfall tends to spoil your other activities!

interesting museum, with a beautiful park out the front. good info inside, unfortunately while we were there there was a large part under renovation due to hurricane damage.

The Fiji Museum or any historical sites should be always considered in any of your visit. Walk through its botanical gardern after visiting the museum, which I found very serene and peaceful; just get away from the norm's of fast & busy routine. Breathe fresh air whilst walking under shade of trees. Feel free to meditate, connect with nature with... More

If you are in Suva this is a nice place to catch up Fiji history but it's very small & limited. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it. You can check out my full Fiji review at HowDoesShe.com

Thought the $10 entry price was bit much but went into other room where souvenir shop was and there was a door leading to another area. As museum grows its room sections look to grow to. Went there because looking for some specific history and found this.

Highly recommended by locals. Small enough to get close to the exhibits which give insight into the past of Fiji. Very cool.

A page out the past. One must see to appreciate. These physical relics and pictorial artifacts are one of a kind. Stroll and immerse yourself in the history and tradition unique to Fiji. This very old building's history within and surrounding grounds are incredibly important spiritual force to the Fijian's culture.

A modest museum by international standards, but still worth a visit if you have a day in Suva. good background to the islands' history.
