We visited as part of an organized group, and this was nice. They motivated to make music and dancing and singing, showing a bit the cultural part of the islands. Just going there without a group to see the costumes is nice, but nothing special....More

The museum is just beginning, and more planning should be put into it. There are about four or five costumes on display, and there is little else. The music presentation was fine, but didn't really promote what it should. The resorts were unclear - even...More
