Jean P. Hayden Museum   
Located in Fagatogo Village, the structure was built in 1917 and originally served as a  naval commissary. It later served as the islandís post office from 1950-1971. The  museum was named in honor of Governor Haydenís wife, during the Governorís term in  Samoa from 1970 to 1974.  The museum features exhibits on natural history, tapa cloths, original artifacts used in hunting pigeons, tools, war clubs, fine cloth mats, fishing gear,  kava bowls, model canoes, and historic photos.  It also offers educational tours and the  Arts Fia Fia Program, in which the arts, both Samoan and non-Samoan, are celebrated for  two weeks. 

Artists demonstrate their creations with indoor and outdoor exhibits. The  museum is not always open during regular hours; however the doors will open whenever  the museum is informed of cruise ship arrivals.  It is recommended to call ahead of time.
