Island of Hawaii Museums

The island of Hawaii is home to an alluring variety of museums, from Hulihee Palace, a seaside residence for Hawaiian royalty two centuries old, to Imiloa Astronomy Center, a state-of-the-art planetarium and science center bridging the exploration ethos of Hawaiian voyagers and today’s astronomers. In addition to art, cultural artifacts and exhibits about the history and science of the island of Hawaii, these museums help us to understand the island’s place in the world and contributions to it.

 

Learn about the rise and fall of sugar production at the Hawaii Plantation Museum, and see how early Hawaiians lived at the Lyman House Museum. Drink in the culture behind Hawaii’s coffee industry at the Kona Historical Society. And experience the island’s ever-changing natural environment at the Pacific Tsunami Museum and Mokupapapa Discovery Center for Hawaii’s Remote Coral Reefs. Visiting these and other island of Hawaii museums will allow you to take a step back in time, or get a glimpse of the future.
