Take a quick break from the surf and sand and acquaint yourself with Hawaii’s historically rich past. Once the home of American missionaries David and Sarah Lyman (circa 1830s), the building was expanded a century later and turned into a museum dedicated to Hawaiian history. Take a tour of the Lyman Mission House to get a glimpse into 19th century missionary life and peruse Lyman Museum that features cultural artifacts from Hawaiian history (focusing on the ethnic communities that immigrated to Hawaii to work the sugar plantations) as well as natural history exhibits about the Big Island’s volcanoes and various wildlife habitats.
