The museum is housed in a two-storey colonial building of over a century years old that was once a German school. It aims to preserve, conserve, and interpret the material and intangible culture of Samoa.
The Museum of Samoa contains a striking collection of artefacts and historical images pertaining to Samoa's rich living culture and its dynamic history. The collection is a reflection of the fa'aSamoa, its history and its tropical environment. It also displays some of the Pacific Islands artefacts and depicts the Pacific islands' similar cultures. The museum also houses 3,000-year-old pottery and stone adze discovered in Samoa.
Free entry. Donations welcome.
