Parker Ranch Visitor Center and Museum
A well known tourist attraction, this museum chronicles the life of John Parker who founded Parker Ranch in 1847 after befriending King Kamehameha and marrying his granddaughter. The 150 year history of the ranch is depicted through life size dioramas, exhibits, artifacts, and a 22 minute video and tours are available of Mana, the original koa wood cabin of the John Parker.
The historic homes at Puuopelu in Waimea are an amazing piece of Hawaiian history. The homes are so interesting, the docents are so informative, this is a hidden gem. If you want to see the real Parker Ranch see these homes.
The Parker Ranch Visitor center set us up for a two hour "Quad" ride on the Parker Ranch. LOVED IT and very much reccomend it. We had an authentic Hawiian Cowboy, "JohnK" who took us on the trip and it was a total-hoot ! Went to the Cinder Pit by the hill on "Holoholo Ku" it was spectacular. "JohnK" gave us a very informative tour and talk on the History of Ranching and Cattle in Hawaii. I reccomend this ride and make sure you call and ask for "JohnK" to take you around.
