It was a little small, but had some fantastic stories and I learned all about the shock rock and signal. Recommend it for anybody wanting to spend a couple hours to learn about real live Hawaiian history.

This is a must do! Friendly staff and a quick little visit. Price is good and you can get a passport that includes three other small museums for a discounted price. Learn about how sugar cane was transformed into sugar. Learn about the workers. Learn about how the families built the plantation into a thriving farm.

Fantastic place to learn about the history and demise of the sugar industry on Maui. Plan to spend a hour or a little more viewing the indoor interactive exhibits, pictures, and artifacts that make you appreciate the Hawaiians and immigrants who worked so hard in this industry. A great way to spend a last day before heading to the airport minutes away. $7 for adults, $5 for seniors 60+, $2 for children 6-12, children 5 and under are free. Military discount $5 for veterans, active, and retired. Located across from the old sugar mill at 3957 Hansen Road. Admission is daily 9:30 to 4:00.
