Jean P. Haydon Museum

Fagatogo, Eastern District 96799, American Samoa

The Jean P. Haydon Museum, set in a 1917 U.S. Navy commissary that later served as a post office, features exhibits on local history, sea life, kava making and traditional handicrafts. One of the highlights is a display of a small Samoa flag and three moon stones that were given as a gift to American Samoa by President Richard Nixon following the return of the Apollo moon missions. (The flag traveled to the moon on one of the missions.)
