Introducing Fiji Museum, Suva


Take a journey into Fiji's archaeological and indigenous cultural history in this excellent museum, home to a fascinating collection that dates back 3700 years.

See the massive 13.43m-long Ratu Finau – Fiji's last waqa tabus (double hulled canoe) as well as an array of war clubs, cannibal utensils, tanoa bowls, whale tooth necklaces and other relics that offer a vivid insight into Fijian traditional life.

Later additions include the rudder and other items from HMS Bounty, burned and sunk at Pitcairn Island by Fletcher Christian and the other mutineers in 1789 but later recovered in the 1950s by Luis Marden, the National Geographic photographer.

Don’t miss the upstairs galleries that feature Indian art exhibits by the country's finest contemporary artists.

The Fiji Museum is located in the heart of Suva’s botanical gardens.
