Explore the rich and complex history of one of the most fascinating places on Earth
Hawaiian history began when voyagers crossed the entirety of the Pacific Ocean without the aid of a compass at a time when African, European, and Asian explorers barely left sight of land. This long and twisted tale continues on through conquest, kingdom, colonization, and commerce right up to today.
Walk in the footsteps of heroes and traitors, victims and victors. See the remnants of the last great civilization on Earth to be contacted by the outside world. Experience the tragedy and triumph of Hawai'i Nei as you feel the weight of the ages beneath your own feet.
