Learn about Fiji's culture and history at Fiji Museum, a site containing national treasures and fascinating artifacts. Collections are organized in chronological order and feature items from indigenous people like musical instruments, cooking utensils, jewelry, weapons, and a large double-hulled canoe. Admire artwork from Fiji's first contemporary artists and wander through manicured gardens just outside. Be aware that there are a few graphic displays on cannibalism that children might find disturbing. A small but full gift shop offers souvenirs.

  • Not very big but good to get a small insight into Fijian history and culture.
  • Charming museum! And the bonus is the café at exit - bang on coffee and must-have passion fruit and coconut cupcake. Going there again just for cupcake!!
  • Good to get an idea of Fijian culture but missing more information an items about the ancient times.
  • Lovely Place to visit to know more about Fiji's history.
  • Decent museum, could have a little more curation. Certainly worth the time if you are here.

Where to stay in Suva

By and large, accommodations in Suva cluster in the vicinity of its main strip, Victoria Parade. Here you have a solid choice of comfortable hotels, mostly in the mid-to-high range, with the most lavish options located on the Parade itself and backing onto the waterfront. For slightly more affordable prices, look along Robertson Road, a ten-minute walk north of Victoria Parade.
