Visiting the Isaak Art Center – A must visit Museum and Gallery in the heart of Waimea

If there ever was a worthwhile place to visit that also serves a higher cause, it’s the Isaak Art Center – a combined museum and gallery space in Waimea. Not only is it a fantastic museum space featuring Pacific island artifacts, art and historic treasures but it also serves as a gallery with beautiful finds that you can actually purchase and support the local Hawaii preparatory School Academy in Waimea. The center fosters art appreciation and extends that in the schools and community it supports through the HPA scholarship fund.
