Even though the size of the museum makes it seem a bit overpriced, there are many interesting artifacts inside, and don't miss the "backyard" exhibit outside.

See it all in 15 minutes. You can learn a few things and see some indigenous art. Some pretty hibiscus outside in the sculpture garden.

This museum is smaller than most. It sits in the median of converging busy streets. While you can see most art pieces and view the videos within 2 hours, it's possible to take away information about the diverse cultures of the Pacific Islands that you...More
