Hamakua Hotspots

Laupahoehoe Train Museum

Around the turn-of-the-century, when sugar was King, the railroad was the chief means of transportation along the Hamakua Coast. The Hilo to Hamakua railroad line, one of the most expensive lines to build in its time, was largely destroyed by the Tsunami of 1946. This quaint little museum is a great spot to learn about the history of this region and it is located in the former plantation managers house and highlights historic artifacts that recall the Railroad era and a running, refurbished plantation era train.
