I have visited the museum a few times and the sand drawing artist has always been away. He was also away on this trip but a trainee created some excellent drawings for us.
A few people have commented on the lighting level. Low lighting levels...More
An interesting collection of artefacts from various locations. 2019 entry fee was 1000 vatu (approx $14 AUD). Take time to read the information sheets. The collection of stuffed birds is looking a bit tired but someone obviously took an interest at one time. The notes...More

Hey there! I'm a current volunteer at VKS. It's 1000 vatu or $10USD for general admission, 1500 if you'd like a guide (he does all of the sand drawing, flute playing, etc)....definitely worth the extra 500 vatu!
