This is a very small museum with quite a few static exhibits and information about the sugar industry in Maui. The history is interesting, but we particularly enjoyed the short video showing how sugar is harvested

This is a walk through museum with about 5 rooms and a gift shop. There is a brief computer screen movie of how sugar cane was harvested and processed. The exhibits are dated but for $5 senior admission, it was worth it

This small museum was well maintained - manned with mostly volunteers. It had interesting displays about the history of the sugar industry in Maui and how workers lived. Admission fee was reasonable for seniors.

Pretty interesting, was mostly inside . I think there could have been better outside visuals. If you purchase the passport for the four museums then it’s worth the price.

We have driven by the museum many times during our multiple stays in Maui and finally we made a point to stop in. Extremely reasonable admission and a terrific history lesson. Will now look at Maui with a different perspective.
