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.

  • The museum has but only a fraction of the richness of the Fijian History. It is however home to certain priceless artifacts of Fiji's unique culture. While there may be no tour guides available during the journey, the museum however has descriptions placed against the pieces to give the visitor a brief idea. They also have a gift shop which has books and souvenirs for customers to buy.
  • Decent amount of Fijian history. Little older building, but that's not the attraction. Cool stuff inside, and nice park outside.
  • Great that this collection exists, though limited. Lovely garden and nice cafe for visitors.
  • Has artifacts of which was used in the 1900's and even before that,which provides tourists better understanding of the outstanding i-Taukei(fijian) culture.
  • The attitude of a mature lady at your reception desk left us very disappointed and disgusted after our recent visit. My son proudly arranged and took his grandfather Ratu Josefa Talainikovana Uluiviti to view the impressive exhibition of his relative and namesake the Late Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna. We were left dumbfoundered by the cold reception of this lady and on leaving she totally ignored or attempts to comunicate our compliments and good byes. This is a front line staff member in a place exhibiting Fijjan heritage and history, please ensure this woman reflects true Fijian hospitality and welcome, even christian value of common courteousy. Our visit was on Thursday 21st of December at approximately 2pm. Trust your prompt action to these requests. Vinaka vaka Levu Shane laginikoro, Christine Laginikoro, Sean Laginikoro On behalf of Ratu Josefa Talainikovana Uluiviti. P.s Generally the exhibits and improvements have been great and a valuable asset to Fiji and the Pacific...for this I would have given a 4 star...but for your front desk staff member. Cafe and Souvenir shop ladies where very pleasant and welcoming. Vinaka

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.
