Kamuela, HI




The Parker Ranch was owned by the late Richard Smart for whom art collecting was a passion. When he passed on in 1992, the ranch, the museum and the collection were left for the benefit of the local community of Kamuela.

Down a mile-long drive past bull pens and cow pokes, The Parker Ranch Museum (Historic Homes and Gardens) also displays original ranch furnishings and a remarkable collection of French Impressionist and Asian art. Please call the museum for hours and fees. To reach the museum from the coastal resort areas on the Kona side of the Big Island, drive north on Highway 19 to Kamuela, also known and Waimea, and turn right on Highway 190 in the middle of town. Travel south on Highway 190 about .7 mile to the entrance to the Museum.
