The 3-story building houses two floors of Palauan and Micronesian artifacts, displays, photography and information . The top floor has restrooms, more displays, and a large gift shop selling art, jewelry, books and souvenirs.

While the use of historical magazine articles to provide context is interesting, a few more interpretive signs would be helpful. The top floor is a gift shop, but most of the products are made in China.
