Welcome to the official website of the Hawaii Plantation Museum.
The Hawaii Plantation Museum, located in the old Onomea Sugar Plantation Store, was built in 1900. The plantation sold the store in 1950 to S. Yoshiyama who worked in the store. The store is located at 27-246 Old Mamalahoa Highway in Papaikou, Hawaii.
The museum is a history as well as an educational center which shows how the sugar industry helped develop a very different lifestyle in Hawaii.
The mission and purpose of the museum is to collect, preserve and exhibit Hawaii Island sugar plantation artifacts, and small business (Mom & Pops stores) memorabilia for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations.
