Hawaii Brings Kids and History Together

An educational experience can be easily tucked into your next family vacation in Hawaii. Various historical and cultural museums around the islands help enrich the visit more so than just playing at the beach all day. Islands’ history are highlighted at these following attractions:

  • Connect with nature on Kauai at the Kokee Natural History Museum where you can participate in interpretive programs and exhibitions focused on Kauai’s ecology, geology, and climatology. The museum also provides information on the trails in Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” and Kokee State Parks. www.Kokee.org
  • The events of WWII unfold right before your eyes at the Pacific Aviation Museum in Pearl Harbor on Oahu. Be immersed by the sights and sounds of what life was like on that infamous day and even take advantage of one of the six interactive stimulators where you can become a WWII pilot. www.PacificAviationMuseum.org
  • Maui’s Whalers Village Museum takes you back in time, to the 19th century, through the eyes of an ordinary sailor or “whaleman” when Lahaina was a bustling whaling town. This free museum also explores the different types of whales that live and visit Hawaii’s waters. www.WhalersVillage.com
  • All aboard the Laupahoehoe Train Museum on the Hamakua Coast of Hawaii's Big Island. Honoring the history of the Hilo Railroad, the railway ran from 1899 until 1946 when the tracks were damaged by a devastating tidal wave. The museum’s grounds are also rich with tropical fruit trees and perfect for a relaxing stroll or picnic. www.TheTrainMuseum.com
