  • Not very large, but very interesting displays and a fun way to spend 60-90 minutes. All of us, family of four, two teenagers enjoyed our time. Great to understand how sugar was made from cane and see....  more »

  • Interesting to learn the history of some of the sugar cane industry on the islands. The cultural diversity of the immigrants was what was so surprising to me. Pretty cool.
  • To learn about Hawaii's sugar history on Maui, this is a really good museum to learn the background and history of how Hawaii got it's start through plantation life. This is great for adults and kid. It isn't big, yet it isn't small. You don't need much time there, maybe an hour or so, but it is well worth the stop. The property has some large farm machinery which would be fun for the kids to see and gives you a nice stroll around the surrounding lot of this old building across the street from the now shut down sugar mill. Once you get inside, you will find multiple rooms with lots large pictures and objects from past with excellent descriptions to immerse yourself in the history of this important part of Hawaii's development. They do offer a Kamaina discount if you are local, but it is very inexpensive anyways. Being near the airport, it might be a good last minute activity before departing the island. That is what we did. The airport is actually less then 10 minutes away for this attraction. Whether you are an adult or have kids, I do recommend stopping by this place and learn about Hawaii's past.
