  • Entry is just a voluntary gold coin. Interesting, but not large. Easy to get to and worth a look.
  • Pretty small but had some interesting displays
  • Smallish space but good information and displays. There is a display of historic stone adzes atm, and a video of recent archeological excavations
  • beautiful place to visit, the displays was awesome and if you're into history and admiring the beautiful tools and cultural costume that has been work back in the day - you will enjoy what the museum has to offer you. A place where one can connect to the cook islands.
  • Good place to find out about the rarotonga history
