The Museum of Samoa is “expanding its walls” by creating a mobile phone app and on online site to expand on the history and culture sites of Apia. 

It is a natural project for the Museum, which is mandated to increase public understanding of Samoa’s unique and interesting history and culture. 

Titled Smart Management of Heritage Sites in Apia “the Malamalama Trail,” the launch will be held today at 11 at the M.E.S.C Aute Conference room.

This will be accompanied by a photo exhibition donated by the Alexander Turnbull Library, National Library of New Zealand and a presentation of the app content.

The app is an answer to the researchers of the museum collection, students here and afar, tourists, and the general public’s interest. It will continue to develop in content but we celebrate its inclusion in the museum collection by sharing it with you now. 

The Museum of Samoa’s App project, is funded by a Tourism Development Initiative Grant. This is developed between Scope Global and Pacific Islands Trade and Invest, as part of their Strategic Alliance, to help support tourism initiatives.
