    There is an audio guide at no extra cost that tells you all about the plant and its uses. You learn the difference between endemic and indigenous and which plants are which with an emphasis on the nat...  more »

    Run down and sparse botanical garden. About as exciting and diverse as the city park.

    Really looks poorly maintained. Bushes are dry and disorganized. Some decent parts like the grassy hut, and some nice trees, but most of it is an eyesore. Don't expect many flowers at all, I feel it has to do with either native and endemic species which do not flower much or because it was Jan/Feb. Price is now 5$ per person too, definitely not worth it. I can get what they are trying to do, and it kinda feels like they are low on funding, but it's not a proper tourist attraction, more of a library of plants and buses. I'd hit up the amazing enchanted gardens in kula I'd you want to see insanely amazing flowers and plants.

    There is nothing else like Maui Nui Botanical Gardens on the island. All native plants (indigenous and endemic). I learn something new every time I go, and I go often. I am transforming my property to all native, so this is a great place to see the plants in their mature state first. You can also buy keikis to bring home and plant. Definitely worth the visit.

    Agree with the "run down" review. Spend your valuable time somewhere else or drive to Hana, you can see much better places on the way.

    Not very big and the plants needed watered. Staff was not very friendly.
