Originally built as a Mission House, by New England missionaries David and Sarah Lyman, the museum was built by their descendants a century later. The exhibits of the museum aim at showcasing the true Hawaiian culture and educating people about the same. The highlight of the Lyman museum is the unique collection of shells and minerals, including a specimen of orlymanite which was named after the founder of the museum, Orlando Lyman. There are special exhibits that keep changing, solely for the purpose of teaching something new to the visitors about Hawaii's rich traditions.
