Planning a Field Trip or Want a Private Tour?
We Welcome Groups!

Groups of 15 or more

Presentations are given to pre-scheduled groups, tailored to group education level and interest

We welcome class/group visits to the Museum and tailor the visit to meet the outcomes expressed by the teacher or coordinator.

  • Minimum group size is 15 students or attendees
  • Maximum group size is 45 students or attendees
  • Suggested visit time: 1 hour
    • Initial 30-45 minute group presentation covers the science of tsunamis, historical information about Hilo, and personal accounts of survivors.
    • Participants then have approximately 15 minutes to browse or longer if requested.
  • For groups of less than 15 participants we will provide an introduction. This is followed by the participants touring the exhibits on their own.
  • For students in grades 3 and under we do not provide a sit down presentation due to the nature of the content.
  • Advance arrangements may be made by calling the Museum at 808-935-0926 or by emailing
