  • **Update** - the owner is entertaining the idea of selling this place. The entire collection included. Make them an offer!!! So much history and so many amazing things to see! They volunteers are very knowledgeable and more than willing to tell you about their favorite pieces and people they have met or talked to. Learn about the 5 separate train lines, the sugar plantations private loading docks and why each had its own. You will not be disappointed!!
  • We visited this museum by chance and what a find! It was wonderful to see a huge collection of items that gave us a glimpse into the history of Hawaii. We were treated to a private tour around the museum by a very passionate tour guide. The only thing I regret is not having more time to talk to the curators at the end of the tour. Thank you for a great morning!
