    A good place to learn about the history and culture of Kauai. The museum is small, but contains more than enough knowledge to fill your afternoon. If you like exploring things in detail, you might need two afternoons. The staff are great people, and very helpful!

    Terrific place with all the history of Kauai. Amazing historical artifacts. Wonderful staff.

    Small museum with local charm. Not a high "wow" factor, but some things were interesting. Some pieces seemed sketchy, like they were fabricated for the museum. But the price was right unless you go to the gift shop.

    Great intro, very knowledgeable staff. Displays could have been laid out more orderly. Good video of Hawaiian history. Love that your ticket is valid for 7 days so you can go back to take more info in.

    Wonderful museum packed with local Kauai history. Very informative. Well worth the modest admission fee. Be sure to check out the gift shop too. They have a good selection of books.
