I was glad i got the chance to visit the museum while in Palau. There's a great model of a traditional boat as well as the amazing traditional tattooing that was done for both men and women. No pictures are allowed though in parts of the museum, which was strange.

Admission was $5. Staff was kind and helpful. You can take pictures without a flash. I met the carver of the big storyboard inside.
I learned a lot about Palauan life.
It has a main level, a few displays downstairs. The whole upstairs is a gift shop. The gift shop is the most pricey gift shop I have been in on Palau.
The building and facilities was very attractive and modern.

I walked to this museum. It took me 10-15minutes from the West Plaza Downtown hotel. It is on the same road.

We enjoyed the displays and shells. The shop contains a huge assortment of items and is worth a look.

My departing flight was delayed over 12 hours so I had time to "kill". I took advantage and went over to the Etpison Museum. This museum is beautiful and they have a very nice gift store. The Etpison's have done a wonderful job preserving and presenting the culture of Palau.

Definitely a great side trip after all the snorkeling and diving.

Mendy Etpison did a great job researching on Palauan history and culture. Though items displayed limited, those on exhibit do provide visitors with an opportunity to see how Palauan lived in the past and some of the special customs today.
