  • I somehow expected a bit more. The video was rather informative, but there isn't much there - some old equipment and photographs. Better if they turn part of the actual mill across the road into a mus...  more »

  • May came about 20 years ago, but I was different and the former. Sugar cane processing plant remained last in the State of Hawaii on the right side, but this plant is finished by the end of 2016 working finally. Sugarcane cultivation area as last year, became the driving force of the development of Hawaiian sugar cane cultivation and processing is complete. Very small ones at the Museum, describes the historical background and the sugar refining process. Many worked in the sugar cane growing Japanese from their guide. There is a large agricultural machinery used in sugar cane processing at an outdoor exhibition. Visit alone in this Museum, and admission is $ 7, and it is expensive, but Museum passport which you can buy things, and others here, total four of the Bailey House Museum in Wailuku, Lahaina Ho Hsing Kaikan Museum, Baldwin House Museum around $ 10 (seniors, $ 8). I think good Museum Passport if you want to touch on the historic side of Maui.

  • 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.
