  • 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.
  • Two floors hold artifacts, reproductions, and photographs illustrating Palauan traditions, the natural environment, and foreign influences both regional and Western. 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.
