Vision: To preserve, conserve, and interpret the material and intangible culture of Samoa

The museum of Samoa contains a striking collection of artifacts 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 artifacts and depicts the Pacific islands' similar cultures. The museum also houses 3,000 year old pottery and stone adze discovered in Samoa.
