  • Small but informational museum on the history of sugar in Hawaii. Sugar production in the state is scheduled to end this year (2016), but the museum assured me that they would stay open. Very interesting short video on how sugar is processed, and out back are some of the large trucks and cranes you see in the video Definitely worth an hour of your time.
  • They give you free candy when you leave. That's pretty much the most pleasurable thing there. The sugar business on Maui is closing down by the end of the year (2016) due to lack of water (as I was told by a museum employee), so I don't think this museum will continue to exist. The museum seems as if it hasn't been updated for the last 10 years. The information it offers is very much focused on the specific legacy of that company. I expected more exposure to the actual plant (which could be easily achieved as the museum is in midst of sugar cane fields).
  • $7 visit. Small and full of history. The museum is in the old Plantation owner's home, it's pretty cool. A quick 45 to 60 minute stop. Tables outside to eat lunch at.
  • Not your typical tourist museum. You learn about the sugar industry as well as the workers thar labored here through the generations.
  • Great little sugar museum. It tells you the history of sugar promotion on Maui. I hope this museum stays around after Maui ends sugar production this year. Outdoor exhibits include large sugar equipment.
