Course Paper on Mission Houses Museum It has been almost four months I left my country for abroad higher studies. I came long away from Nepal to Hawaii for my study and I have heard that there are numbers of historical places to visit but never got chances to visit any historical place of Hawaii. My professor Dr.Gilbert gave me that opportunity to visit idyllic and quiet property in the middle of downtown Mission Houses Museum on Tuesday April 3, 2012. I am very thankful to him for giving such a great and memorable opportunity. This piece of history is in downtown Honolulu, just few minutes’ walk from Hawaii Pacific University, Downtown. I reached there at around 2:30 and my classmates were already there. Professor Gilbert told us that we will be tour by Mr. Mike but at that time he was not there so we were introduced by mission houses museum volunteer Ms. Lisa and she was originally from Europe. The Mission Houses Museum offers visitors to its place of wonderment and history. Being in this place I felt so strange, it 's pretty neat and clean. I was pleasantly surprised that this place was very well kept up. Being as a Hawaii Pacific University student we got special discount and paid just $6 and tour was of 45 minutes. For other normal visitors general admission is $10 and tours are conducted every hour, and last tour begins promptly at 3pm. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We can walk around the grounds and it 's free. There 's only street parking but I took the public buses run nearby. This place is really educational and one of the places everybody would probably say wow to. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot about Hawaiian history. What the museum has been able to preserve and share is amazing. They have the oldest house of all of the Hawaiian Islands on the property which was actually shipped from
