Lyman Museum hosting photo exhibit through October


Salvaged from trash cans in 1964 and then stashed in archives for decades, a collection of glass plate photographs capturing life in the Kingdom of Hawaii from 1883-1905 has been resurrected in Na Pai Kii o Brother Bertram.

As the first Marianist principal of St. Louis College (now St. Louis School in Honolulu), German-born Brother Bertram Gabriel Bellinghausen left a legacy of education and service to the islands. 

As a pioneering photographer with a particular interest in the makaainana or common people, his legacy includes nearly 2,000 images of the people and landscape of turn-of-the-century Hawaii.  

This exhibition features a selection of photos of Hawaii Island.  

Museum hours: 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday – Saturday

Admission: Kamaaina: $8 adults, $6 seniors, $3 children (ages 6-17), $17 family: Out-of-state: $10 adults, $8 seniors, $3 children, $21 family: University students: $5
