The Museum of Samoa

I'm excited about this one!


A great way to kick off Samoan Language week is the launch of The Museum of Samoa website. This happened on Friday May 25th. From their website, "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."


Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, said the step is a major milestone. "I would like to congratulate you with this important initiative to improve your service throughout Samoa, the Pacific and the world,"

The museum also houses 3,000 year old pottery and stone adze discovered in Samoa. Admission is free.
