Waigani-The Cultural Heart of The City

Waigani-The Cultural Heart of The City in Central Province

The Waigani area is home to the impressive Parliament House building and the National Museum and Art Gallery, which exhibit one of the finest collections of 'Primitive Art' in the world. Sepik River carvings, Malagan masks and Trobriand Island fishing vessels are just some of the unique examples of Papua New Guinea culture on display.
Parliament House building is constructed in the style of a traditional Sepik River Haus Tambaran, or Spirit House. Artists and craftsmen from villages throughout PNG were brought together to work on the impressive carvings, mosaics and murals.
The result is a magnificient testimony to this culturally diverse and fascinating nation.
