Samoa Attractions and Sight Seeing




Robert Louis Stevenson Museum

Robert Louis Stevenson Museum in Apia-Faleolo Airport

A guide is available to take you through the mansion, which features many of Stevenson's original belongings, including part of his library, mementos from his travels in the Pacific, and pieces of his family's furniture. The restoration was completed in 1994 and faithfully represents the interior decoration carried out when the building was first constructed in 1890, although several additions were made to 'Villa Vailima' after Stevenson's death in 1894.

A 30 or 45 minute walk lead from the Museum to Stevenson's tomb at the top of Mount Vaea. The Mount Vaea Scenic Reserve is also well populated with birdlife. It is worth taking water and a picnic, as the view from the tomb is excellent. The museum is set within an attractive botanical garden, worthy of a few hours' wandering.
