Beekeeping Tour

What can you learn about bees in an hour? A lot! Especially when you explore them in their hive with our experienced beekeepers.

This is what you will see and do:

  • A tour and inspection of a live hive with our beekeeper, where you can watch and learn how bees live and forage.
  • Free sampling of all our different honey varietals.
  • A short video explaining the production of honey from flower to jar.
  • Once the tour is over, you are welcome to browse the museum’s artifacts and historical items, and peruse the many unique, locally produced gift items.

We’re located close to the Painted Church, Kealakekua Bay (where Captain Cook first landed on the island), an ancient heiau (temple), Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Greenwell Coffee Farm.
