Daguerreotype and Ambrotype Collection
Mission Houses Museum's Daguerreotype and Ambrotype collection reflects a pivotal period in Hawai'i's history when New England missionaries played an important and indisputable role in advising and educating the Hawaiian royalty. The exhibition offers a unique glimpse into the past while at the same time challenges the viewer to think of their own biographies and lives in the context of contemporary American society.
Select objects from this collection were on exhibit in "Larger Than Life: Portraits and Portrait Making", March 2007 - November 2007.
