Because of work being done on the building, we had to stop 4 times before being able to visit the two display rooms. The historical information was excellent. I had lived in Pago Pago, leaving in 1947 and it was my first visit back. The exhibits brought back some joyful memories. The staff was very kind and helpful.

We stopped at Pago Pago during a cruise and visited this small museum. Inside a converted US Navy commissary are objects, artifacts and exhibits that showcase unique Samoan canoes, kava making and the abundant sea life surrounding the island. During the Apollo moon missions, most astronauts traveled through the island after splashdown, and the museum features small moon rocks.

The displays were helpful in understanding the history of the island and islanders. We did not have any interactions with staff.

There is some free street parking in the area. It is a small museum with no admission fee. You may leave a contribution in the box near the entrance. The museum has artifacts about American Samoa. Not only the culture and people but also the local flora and fauna.
