Housed in one of Kona's oldest buildings, this museum is a taste of 19th-century Hawaiʻi. Built in 1875 and meticulously restored, it has educational docents in period dress who bring Kona's multicultural and agricultural history to life as they wield dry goods and talk story. You'll usually smell sweet bread baking in the traditional Portuguese bread oven after 11am on Thursdays. The museum, sans docents, is open on Tuesdays.
The museum is between Miles 111 and 112 on Hwy 11.
