Hawaii “Big” Island Museums

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, several of our museums are closed and we have temporarily discontinued our Discount Pass program.

For those that are open, you will have the opportunity to experience and learn about Hawaii’s rich history, culture, nature and science.  We hope you will soon enjoy all of these museums once again as you journey around our Big Island of Hawaii.

Please check their websites or call for more information – some have online reservation links.
