There were long lines of people outside the Fiji Museum waiting for their chance to be able to see the displays.

Vinti Chandra from Nadi says she last visited the museum in 2015 and was encouraged by her friends to visit the museum as it has changed after the renovation.

Chandra also says it was a perfect day to visit the museum and look at their ancestral history.

Kelemedi Gukirewa who is a University of the South Pacific student, says there are a lot of changes from the last time he visited.

Gukirewa says it is great to celebrate Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna after 16 years and the display shows how much great history is linked to Fiji.

He adds that the younger generation should not forget their roots as it tells us so much about our country and people.

Evelyn Ali says the renovation has made a good impact and the museum is much more organized than before and she got to see new things.

Ali says Ratu Sukuna plays a huge part of our history and she hopes to see displays related to him as he is one the finest statesmen of Fiji.

She encourages others to visit the museum as it would be great to know what our history was about.
