A nice small museum dedicated to preserving the early Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) history. There are a lot of vintage saddles, bits, spurs and other memorabilia.

Worth checking out to get a feel for the cowboy culture of Waimea - best to go on Wed or Sat when there is a Farmers market there so that you can even enjoy local food.

My wife and I stopped by the Paniolo Heritage Center on our recent visit to Waimea. We first visited it on a Saturday when looking to purchase flowers at a farmer's market. Waimea boasts several farmer's markets on Saturdays, one at the Paiolo Heritage Center....More

This museum is where the mid- week Farmer's Market is, and a regular larger Sat. Market. Take the time to go through the museum, it is short, and sweet.

Nice place for a little history and relaxing. I especially like the Paniolo Hall of Fame since I own horses. We went to the Farmer's Market mid week and there was a variety of items for sale.

The mid week market has good local produce and if you get lucky florals. Always good plate lunch. Some plants. A variety of local crafts and photographers. Beautiful stop off for photographers.
