Mission Houses Museum

Attractions
  • Quite different from local homes of the time, that's for sure

The first Christian missionaries to Hawaii arrived in 1820, and their presence significantly impacted Hawaii’s native culture. The Mission Houses, the oldest Western-style buildings in the Islands, tell the story of the missionaries, their daily life, work and influence on Hawaii’s people.

Highlights

  • The first documents in the Hawaiian language were printed here on the Pacific’s first printing press.
  • Over 3,000 artifacts are on display, including clothing, books and furniture that belonged to the missionary families.
  • Descendants of the first missionaries were instrumental in the overthrow of the monarchy 70 years later.
