The excellent National Museum of Vanuatu, in a glorious building, has a large and well-displayed selection of traditional artefacts such as tamtam (slit-gongs or slit-drums), a massive outrigger canoe, ceremonial headdresses and examples of Lapita and Wusi pottery. There are photographic displays and videos on traditional ceremonies and legends.

Temporary exhibitions have included the Silver Jubilee collection, and sculptures by Emmanuel Watt, the first local artist to have an international touring exhibition.
