Overview

Self-reported by organization

Mission
Houses Museum school programs for pre-K through college entice students to interact with history.  Adults are lured with bits of
history at monthly “Historic Bites” lunchtime lectures as well as public forums
and unique tours surrounding each special exhibition.  Families explore together via Familypacks of activites and quarterly Family Days. Researchers find the library offers original
manuscripts, letters, and newspapers about 19th century Hawai‘i
giving them access to primary sources unavailable elsewhere.
