Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

I've been to several remote Pacific islands -- including Guam, Yap, and Palau. Visiting the museum really took me back there. Unlike a museum such as the Bowers in Santa Ana that has island art objects, this museum shows everyday life. When I was there, PIEAM was celebrating the Chamorro people from Guam. The woman who greeted me from the desk was Chamorro, but she knew plenty about other island cultures. I suggest talking with staff members because the exhibits don't have lengthy labeling. Don't miss the big map that shows Pacific islands... if you're like I was before I did much traveling in the western Pacific, you'll be amazed at how many there are! Climate change and sea level rise are taken very seriously there; I had a long talk with another staff member about what islanders are doing (especially in the Marshall Islands) to help people stay in the homes they've known for centuries.

The museum was especially strong on the islands of Yap. To me, this is one of the most interesting islands I've visited because the Yapese maintain old customs along with the new. For instance, the wheels of stone money (see the photo) are still used as currency -- along with the US dollar. Inside the museum was a small but authentic replica of a men's house from Yap (see the two photos)... they ask you to do as you would on Yap: be respectful, take your shoes off before you enter. It's that kind of museum.

Don't miss the garden outside (enter from the museum) to see more from the islands.

This small museum is the only place in the US where I've seen YAP money displayed. So check out the adjacent garden that's included with admission and where you'll also find rare ancestral figures as many were incorrectly seen as idols and thus destroyed. Inside there is one room with rotating exhibits that includes at least one heritage item per section. On site, usually on weekends, is an artist in residence. There's a small gift corner where we bought an unique handloomed textile very reasonably. Enjoy!

This museum is small but mighty, a true jewel. I was on the last day of an LA trip before returning to my home on the Big Island of Hawaii. My daughter, who now lives in LA, and I were lucky to visit on the last week of the tattoo exhibit. We enjoyed the diverse representation of tattoo styles from many different Pacific island groups. There was a good range of historical and modern tattoo styles with clear explanations for all photos and artfacts. Fran was so knowledgeable, full of aloha, and we learned so much from her. Mahalo Fran! The museum also sells books, shirts and other gift items. Any traveler who really wants to learn about Pacific island cultures from a pono and respectful viewpoint should visit PIEAM. We stayed for almost 2 hours. I’m telling my family and friends to visit PIEAM if they get the chance.

Even though the size of the museum makes it seem a bit overpriced, there are many interesting artifacts inside, and don't miss the "backyard" exhibit outside.

See it all in 15 minutes. You can learn a few things and see some indigenous art. Some pretty hibiscus outside in the sculpture garden.

If you have any interest in Pacific Islander art, including Palauan story boards, latte stones, etc. you will enjoy this museum. It is small, but very cool.

Great treat to find arts and crafts from Pacific Islands in Long Beach. Wood carvings, some textiles, stone work give a briefest taste of the marvelous art and artistry of a little know area. Many of the items are from the collection of Dr. Gumbiner. I hope they expand the collection and add more commentary. Riches to be discovered here!

Long Beach has a great Pacific Islander community. And, one of the very few Pacific Islander Museums in all of Southern California. While it may be small, it is curated wonderfully and speaks to the local community and its rich history.

This newly opened museum is based on the collection made by Dr. Robert Gumbiner. This small store front museum consists of a video room, a tatoo corner where someone was getting a tatoo while we were there, stunning objects, and a sculpture garden with wood sculptures and stone Yap money. Admission for seniors is only $3.00, and quite reasonable if you combine your visit with free Target Sundays at the Museum of Latin American Art across the street that was founded 20 years ago by the same collector.

This place is very small. There is not a lot to see and when I went the person who was working was not very friendly. I only went once and will probably never go back. It would be better to visit the Museum of Latin American Art which is across the street. That Museum is also free to visitors on Sundays.
