Jean P. Haydon Museum, Pago Pago
(1.2/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
The Jean P. Haydon Museum is a museum dedicated to the culture and history of the United States territory of American Samoa.The museum is located on the north side of Route 1 in Fagatogo, American Samoa, roughly opposite the main post office. The building in which it is located, formerly Navy Building 43 of Naval Station Tutuila, is itself historically significant as one of a few surviving buildings constructed by the United States Navy in 1917 with locally-fashioned rusticated concrete blocks. The building served as the naval base's commissary until 1950, when it was turned over to civilian administration and converted to the island's main post office. The post office moved to new facilities, and in 1971 the building was opened as the museum, which is named for the wife of then-governor John M. Haydon.The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

  • This is a nice 1-2 hour stop as you walk about the busy harbor area. Air-conditioned display area features artifacts from ancient settlers, the tuna industry, kings, and (oddly) a moon rock.
