Hawaiian Mission Houses

Educational Assistants make the past come alive for special programs and school tours. These very important volunteers learn various historical processes (butter churning, spinning, etc.) as well as interpretive skills so that they may in turn share these skills with the public and our many educational groups. On-going training is provided and at least a one year commitment is requested.

HMH preserves the heritage and interprets the stories of the American Protestant Missionaries, their descendants, and their relationships with the people and cultures of Hawai`i, connecting with contemporary life, and encouraging a deeper understanding and appreciation of the complex history of Hawaiʻi.

Description

Mission Houses Museum was established in 1920 by the Hawaiian Mission Children's Society (HMCS), a non-profit educational institution and genealogical society. In 1974, the museum was granted full accreditation by the American Association of Museums (AAM).
Today, HMCS continues to gather genealogical data from descendants of the original Protestant missionary families who lived and worked in Hawai`i. Descendants are encouraged to explore their genealogies and to support Mission Houses Museum and the Hawaiian Mission Children's Society in preserving their heritage.
