Being a history buff, I love stories about history and culture. This collection of stories and artifacts takes us deeper into the lives of people in this area. Take an hour or two and enjoy this wonderful collection.

A small museum located in an old house in Makawao. There are some good exhibits that explain and document the area. Admission is free, but donations accepted. Volunteer was very friendly and informative. Not a destination, but if in Makawao stop by.

This small museum documents the history of Upcountry Maui. There are artifacts and curios from the area, and much accurate history to view.
