Patricia E. Saigo public programming

The Saigo Series of public programming, usually offered on Monday evenings throughout the year, comprises lectures, demonstrations, “talk story” sessions, performances, book signings, and other presentations of community interest on Hawai’i-related topics.  Admission is free to Museum members or $3 for nonmembers, which may be applied to the cost of a new membership.  Go to the Saigo Series page for current schedule.

Museum and Mission House Tours for School Groups

For school groups (pre-K through university) and other groups, the Lyman Museum provides interpretive tours for the Museum’s galleries and the Mission House.  Tours can be customized to emphasize a class’s curricular focus.  Please fill out a form here if you are interested in a group tour.

Public Workshops

Twice each year the Museum offers workshops on the creation of traditional-style Ni’ihau shell jewelry, led by master Ni’ihau lei maker Kele Kanahele.  A parol-making workshop is offered during the Christmas season.  Other workshops teaching local crafts are in development.
