“Good collection and good gift shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Palau history has many similarities to much of Micronesia only Palau may have nicest museum for the brief overview. Not too large and not too small, it is just right.

“Good overview of Palau history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Basic museum documenting Palau history, mostly from about 1750 or so until now. If you want a quick overview of Palau, and know a lot about its various foreign rulers, this museum will meet your needs. You don't get much on pre-historic Palau culture, or how the people came to Palau ... perhaps this is unknown. Exhibits, though, are basic and few people to tell you more or answer questions. Air conditioned.

“Worth to pay a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

An interesting place to understand the history of Palau. The information is very detailed. We spent more than an hour to walk thru the meseum.

During my stay at Royal Palau Resort, there was a free pick up service to the museum. It is a bit far away from the main steet if by walk. Don't miss this place just because of the location of the museum.

“Stop and shop! Best gift shop around!”

You don't have to go through the museum to shop here! It is worth a stop. Although the museum looks great and the folks are very friendly.
