Tusitala resided in Western Samoa the last five years of his life, built his home there at Vailima, above Apia, and is buried on top of Mount Vaea, a short distance directly above the house.
On 5 December 1994, one hundred years after the death and burial of RLS., The Robert Louis Stevenson Museum/Preservation Foundation dedicated the completely restored building of Vailima and opened it to the public as the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum.
Donors of RLS-related materials and historical artifacts are actively solicited. RLS titles, especially rare and first editions are being collected currently.
