“Wrong PIcture”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Your picture is not of the Palau National Museum. It is of a private museum which does not have a large enough amount of items to make it very worthwhile. The actual National Museum contains a much larger exhibtion of historical items.

“Great photography exhibit”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Showing old photos and history from the late 1800s on through WWII. Really enjoyed reading the memories & experiences of current residents. Expect a new tour bus group through every 30 minutes like clockwork. Very nice gift shop with items from Palau and beautiful weavings from Yap.

“small, interesting”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

$5 will get you into the museum. Interesting stuff. Nice, trusting people. We walked all the way through, went to pay for something from the gift shop and were asked if we had gone into the museum so they would know if they should collect the fee :)

“Got time?”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Museum has a wealth of information on the history of Palau. So much to see and so much to read. Interesting pictures, artifacts, collections, and displays. The tour takes you from then to now. Take the time to read descripyions of each display. Valuable information and all you want to know about Palau can be found here. Our visit to this museum lasted about an hour and a half.

Gift shop has periodicals, books, treats, maps, jewelry, and many items a visitor may want to purchase.
