For Teachers

Besides offering school programs that are engaging and hands-on, the Hawaiian Mission Houses continues to be the only place in Hawai`i where students can actually learn about early 19th century American history in an authentic setting. As an added bonus, the museum offers a variety of changing exhibitions each year. 

We want to work with you to enhance your students’ study of Hawaiian and early American History. Please call us with your inquiries about how we can work together to make your students’ experience the best possible. Our Public Program Curator is available for your inquiries at 447-3914.
