The sheltered bay of Oʻahu

Traditionally, Honolulu is the urban area on the southeastern shore of the island of Oʻahu, one of the most exotic and popular destinations in the U.S. state of Hawaii. The ideal Honolulu travel guide includes its royal palaces, museums, and art galleries, but the excitement comes with the rustic surf towns boasting with local crafts and famous beaches. Honolulu is the heart of Oʻahu’s art and culture scene, as exciting overall as its most famous beach, Waikiki.

Mission Houses Museum

To honor Hawaii's first missionaries

Stay Editor's Note

The Mission Houses Museum tells the history of the Hawaiian missionary period, from 1820 to 1863, an essential time frame, fundamental for understanding the contemporary Hawaii. The museum was established in 1923 by the Hawaiian Mission Children’s Society.

The Mission Houses Museum features three houses that served as homes and workplaces for the first Christian missionaries who came to Hawaii:

  • Frame House (Hale Lā‘au) (1821)
  • Chamberlain House (Ka Hale Kamalani) (1831)
  • Printing Office (Ka Hale Pa‘i) (1841)

Also on the ground, the Mission Houses Museum Cafe and Tea Parlor welcomes guests with a light breakfast, coffee drinks and lunch with takeout and casual in-house dining.
