  • Loved everything in the museum, but very difficult reading due to poor lighting, and the glass could use a good cleaning. The museum contains a lot of exceptional relics and culturally significant art...  more »
  • A lovely place to visit to see the cultural heritage of Vanuatu with an interesting session with a local guide. Lighting is a bit poor and I struggled to read some of the exhibits.  more »
  • Although small and hot, the museum displays an interesting collection that provides an overall view of Vanuatu's history and diverse culture.  more »

  • Moving stories and sand drawing from the resident chief. His singing and playing traditional instruments was a highlight of our 11 day stay in beautiful Vanuatu. The tamtam drum used in the original independence celebration of 1980 is draped with the original flag.
  • Nice place displaying the culture and heritage of the Vanuatu people. Really enjoyed it.
  • Very good cultural experience, good selection of local artefacts
  • We only paid the 1000 Vatu entry and looked round ourselves. Interesting for adults. Kid (7 yrs) was not so engaged. Were lucky enough to see the artist draw quite a few of the sand drawings.
  • A Beautiful museum for Poor Country Like Vanuatu
