Pago Pago is the capital city of American Samoa. In the Samoan language it is pronounced "Pahngo-Pahngo".
Pago Pago International AirportThe small terminal is in the process of expanding and taxis are always available when exiting the building. There does not seem to be a lot of air traffic, except for flights to/from Hawaii and neighboring islands of Manu'a and the independent country of (Western) Samoa. The cost of a taxi ride from Tafuna to Pago Pago is usually $15-$20, and $1.00 on a aiga bus. Most hotels on the island offer pick-up and shuttle service if arranged in advance.
Jean P. Haydon MuseumA museum that showcases Samoan history, culture, and nature, it's a great place to learn about the island and become acquainted with the local culture before venturing out to other destinations. The museum features many cultural artifacts, such as clothing, art, weaponry, pottery, and tattooing. There are also artifacts from WWII. Exhibits about the island itself, including the types of plants and animals are also on display. The museum is named after the wife of the founder, who collected many of the artifacts on display in the museum.
