  • I had the pleasure of visiting the Robert Lewis Stevenson Museum on Saturday September 10th. The drive up to the museum was a lovely long driveway up to the Museum which is a very grand house!. I was met by Esa the tour guide who kindly took me around the various rooms whilst telling the insightful and unique story of Robert Lewis Stevenson and his family who ended up in Apia, Samoa. Esa my tour guide was incredible she had amazing knowledge of the whole story of the Robert Lewis Stevenson family and their incredible life in Apia, Samoa. It truly was heartwarming and since I have been living in Apia for 3 months it’s been the biggest highlight for me. Esa had a close relationship with the previous owners, and you could really feel the warmth of the tour resonating through her words. The house and grounds are simply amazing, very tranquil and relaxing and you feel this even more directly after the tour. I cannot recommend any tourist visiting Samoa highly enough to visit the Robert Lewis Stevenson Museum you won’t be disappointed. I will be aiming to come back to walk up to Robert's tomb in the near future which you can access via the museum. Thank you to the lovely friendly staff for a fantastic experience.
  • A grand homestead in wonderful grounds, with a fascinating story. Our guided tour was worth the wait, the guide was knowledgeable and informative, and knew the answers to our questions. The homestead itself has been filled with interesting artifacts from the period. We didn't have time to walk to the tomb on top of Mt Vaea, but having RLS's Requiem sung to us by one of the staff more than made up for it.
