The Lyman Museum showcases Hawai'i's natural and cultural history both in its exhibition halls and in its 1839 historic missionary home. The Museum features a world renowned mineral collection which includes Orlymanite, the only known specimen of a rare mineral fully identified only in 1987 and named for the collector Orlando Lyman, great grandson of David and Sarah Lyman. The Museum also houses an extensive collection of seashells, ancient art of China, and works from artists of Hawai'i.
