ENTRANCE: The Charlie Chan Family Home

The cooling caress of a tradewind breeze, carrying with it the subtle perfume of plumeria, gently sways the palms and rustles the glistening leaves of the algaroba trees that shade the house nestled on the upper slope of Punchbowl Hill above the bustling tropical city of Honolulu.  This house, now a virtual  museum, has been the ancestral home to the Chan family for decades.  So, please dear visitor, accept an unworthy yet heartfelt welcome to you, our honored guest!

Each room of this venerable old home will hopefully offer an opportunity to learn a few new facts about the life and work of illustrious detective and family patriarch Charlie Chan.

Please feel free to wander through our small museum by using the links provided at the top of this and all of our pages, or, for more detailed information, you may prefer to begin your tour by first visiting our Directory.
