Fodor's Expert Review Jean P. Haydon Museum

American Samoa Museum/Gallery

Occupying a former naval commissary and garage buildings, this museum opened in 1971 and is named after the wife of then-Governor John M. Haydon. The venue is used for cultural exhibits, books, and performances, while the small fale (house) in front of the museum often hosts arts and crafts demonstrations. An unusual exhibit shows the American Samoan flag that was taken to the moon by astronauts on four Apollo moon missions from 1969 to 1971, along with a collection of moon rocks gathered on the missions and gifted to the territory by President Nixon.
