If you drive up to the town of Waimea, stop by the Gallery of Great Things. This unique gallery and shop features numerous beautiful handmade crafts.
Situated in an old house with history – it housed nurses during World War Two – the Gallery has many small rooms to explore. Around every corner, you will find some nook with beautiful works of art from Hawaii and around the world.
This is the Gallery of Great Things: Art of Hawaii and the Pacific.
Here, you will find everything from stained glass to rosewood furniture and bowls to handmade jewellery. The Gallery also has numerous paintings, photographs, and sculptures, including prints of the Hawaiian Islands’ gorgeous landscapes. Another section has kitchen utensils with island flair. The many crafts and works of art run the gamut from quirky to elegant – so you’re sure to find something that suits your taste.
Great gallery to visit when in Waimea!
The Gallery of Great Things is located on Kawaihae Road (it will be on your right as you head into town if you’re driving from the Kohala Coast). This is a great place to stop on the way back from a Farmers Market in Waimea , Horseback Riding on Kohala Mountain , or just while exploring the ranching town of Waimea.
