Grove Farm Sugar Plantation Museum

Upcoming Events

These properties served over the years as gathering locations for family as well as the community, and continue today to host celebrations for an even greater audience. We hope you can join us!

In conjunction with
Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day
we are holding a
Free Ohana Day!
at Grove Farm in Lihue and
the Waioli Mission House in Hanalei

On Saturday, September 21, 2019
from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Grove Farm museum (at 4050 Nawiliwili Road in Lihue) will have self-guided tours around the grounds and through the main buildings.
Guides will be stationed within the buildings to tell
of the history held there.

Out on the lawn there will be simple water games for the keiki to play (bring your towels – no wet keiki in the buildings, please!), the gift shop will be open, plus we’ll have hot dogs, fresh produce, and candy for sale.

At the Waioli Mission House (set back from Kuhio Highway behind the green Waioli Hui’ia church in Hanalei) there will be guided tours offered
from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

We hope you will come and enjoy these beautiful historic sites that celebrate Kauai’s history!
