Virtual School Tours: Hawaiian Mission Houses is honored to have received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to convert our School Tours into a virtual format. We have already piloted these programs, in both ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i and English, during the 2020 Summer and are happy to schedule Virtual School Tours now or for the 2020-21 school year. Contact School Programs Coordinator Yvonne Manipon at ymanipon@missionhouses.org for more information.

School Programs

Growing Together. Explore. Listen. Learn. Imagine.

E Komo Mai, developing young minds!

Hawaiian Mission Houses is pleased to offer a variety of learning experiences for students of all ages. Our school tours and enhanced outreach materials are designed to engage students using historical objects and primary sources to build critical thinking skills.

Tours at the Hawaiian Mission Houses can feature hands-on activities that are integrated into the tours, so that each program includes activities appropriate for students of all ages. While we give age-level suggestions for the programs offered at Hawaiian Mission Houses, we are happy to work with educators to adapt the Historic Site’s programs to their students’ grade level when possible.

Besides offering 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.

Whether it’s one of our ongoing programs or a program related to our changing exhibitions, Hawaiian Mission Houses is committed to helping your students connect with and understand the topics critical to making Hawai`i what it is today.  We hope you will visit us soon!
