Big Island Sights

Lyman Museum & Mission House

Updated 01/06/2014

Fodor's Review

Built in 1839, the beautifully restored Lyman Mission House is the oldest frame building on the island. (Tours are offered.) An adjacent museum has wonderful exhibits on volcanoes, island formation, island habitats and wildlife, marine shells, and minerals and gemstones. It also showcases native Hawaiian culture and immigrant ethnic groups, including a life-size replica of a traditional Korean home. The gift shop has great Hawaiian items.
