Welcome back — we’ve missed you! 

Hawaiian Mission Houses is excited to welcome the community back to our site beginning Tuesday, July 14, by reservation only! Please reference the following to schedule your first re-opening visit:

Historic House Tours: Tours will be held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11a and 1p, and Saturdays 11a, 1p and 3p. Tickets are free for kama‘āina for the first month! There will be a five person maximum, and tours may be booked as combined groups or requested as private (limited to visitors from one household). Use of masks inside, hand sanitizer and temperature scans at the door will be required. There will be no walk-in tour bookings at this time. Reserve tickets at least 24 hours in advance at https://www.missionhouses.org/tours-and-programs

Perspectives Tours: Hawaiian Mission Houses will continue offering its three new “Perspectives” tours started last year, offering deeper insights into the site from historical, architectural, and Native Hawaiian perspectives. Offered once a week, each of these tours will be given virtually and require pre-reservation. Reserve tickets at least 24 hours in advance at https://www.missionhouses.org/special-tours

Gift Shop: The Gift Shop will be open for walk-in shopping Tuesdays and Fridays 10:30am to 2:30pm and Saturdays 10:30am to 3pm. The store has a maximum capacity of 6 people to maintain social distancing, so please be aware we may need to ask visitors to wait outside to limit store capacity. Use of masks inside and hand sanitizer at the door will be required. Online order pick-up will also be available during these times. Place orders at https://www.missionhouses.org/gift-shop/

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.
