The Laupahoehoe Train Museum is located on the northeast coast of the Big Island in the city of Laupahoehoe. Their mission is to preserve, promote, and protect the historic, cultural, educational, social, civic and economic, interests of the North Hilo and Hamakua districts, while highlighting the history of the railroads on the island of Hawaii.
The primary focus of the museum is on the Hilo Railroad which started in 1899 and ran until 1946 when a tsunami damaged the tracks and facilities beyond repair. Take a step back in time and see how the railroad life in the early 1900's was handled through exhibits, photographs, and volunteers who love to talk story.
This is a small museum that is run by the community as a 501(c)3 non-profit charity that relies on your donations and memberships so stop by and say aloha while helping them out. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and kama'aina, $3 for students, and they have a $15 family rate as well.
