Lyman Museum & Mission House
Built in 1839 for David and Sarah Lyman, Congregationalist missionaries, the Lyman House is the oldest frame building on the island. In the adjacent museum, dedicated in 1973, there's a realistic magma chamber and exhibits on the islands' formation. There's also an interesting section on Hawaiian flora and fauna. The gift shop sells Hawaiian books, cards, gifts, and music. It's best to call ahead for tour availability. www.lymanmuseum.org. COST: $10. OPEN: Mon.--Sat. 10--4:30, Mission House tours 11--2.
