Welcome to Hawaii's Plantation Village!

The Outdoor Museum of Hawaii's Cultural History
Step back in time to when ‘sugar was King’ and experience the real Hawaii. Hawaii’s Plantation Village is the perfect location for keiki, family, and all ages to explore a living history museum and botanical garden. A visit to us opens a door to a time of true hospitality and cultural sharing that sprung from Hawaii’s plantation life.

Hawaii's Plantation Village is an outdoor museum telling the story of life on Hawaii's sugar plantations (circa 1850-1950). The Village includes restored buildings and replicas of plantation structures, including houses of various ethnic groups and community buildings such as the plantation store, infirmary, bathhouse and manager's office. We share the story of Hawaii's many cultures: including Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, Okinawan, Portuguese and Puerto Rican.

A Visit to Hawaii's Plantation Village

Located in historic Waipahu town, our local guides take you on a journey back to the early 1900s where you can experience more than 25 authentic plantation homes and structures featuring personal artifacts, clothing, furniture and art placed in their original settings. Unusual plants brought from China, Portugal, Japan, Puerto Rico, Korea, Okinawa, Polynesia and the Philippines by immigrants from their native lands provide delicious fruit samples during the tour. This “must-see” attraction is located in historic Waipahu town, just down the street from Waikele Shopping Outlets.

Temporary Closure -- Covid-19 Update
In the best interests for the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, guests, and the community, we have decided to temporarily close the Village and Museum to the public through the end of April. We will continue to assess the situation and keep you informed of any changes to our operations, including our eventual plans to reopen the Village and Museum, and restart our programs, activities, and events.
We look forward to welcoming all of you back to the Hawaii's Plantation Village once we have reopened. Please check back or visit our Facebook page for updates.
