Hawaii's Plantation Village is a trip back in time when the sugar plantation industry was booming on the islands between 1850 to 1950. It's an outdoor museum with authentic dwellings where the immigrants who worked the fields lived. There are replica's of buildings that made up the plantation community such as the infirmary, bathhouse, store, and community building.

The Hawaii Plantation exhibits the melting pot of Hawaii's culture with artifacts an dwellings from Hawaiian, Chinese, Portuguese, Puerto Rican, Japanese, Korean and Filipino ethnic groups.

There are more than buildings each show how the immigrants lived, ate, and cared for each other. The plantation is surrounded by lush tropical trees and plants from China, Portugal, Japan, Puerto Rico, Korea, Okinawa, Polynesia, and the Philippines.

A docent will take you on a guided tour of the plantation, sharing stories of life back in the day.
