The Hawaiian mission houses historical site

I visited for the first time the Hawaiian mission houses in downtown Honolulu.

This fascinating museum takes you back to the 19th century. These are original houses of the New England missionaries who settled in Hawaii. I have no photos of the interior because we are not allowed to photograph the interior. Daily life is recreated through artifacts and exhibits of life in Hawaii in the early 1800s.

This is my  black and white gallery of the exterior of the Mission houses:

      To visit the mission houses is a fascinating experience. I lived on Oahu over 20 years and did not visit the museum once. Now done!!
      I also love architecture 🙂

      Have a nice day, my friend.
