DAGUERREOTYPE AND AMBROTYPE COLLECTION

DAGUERREOTYPE AND AMBROTYPE COLLECTION - The Hawaiian Mission Houses 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.
