I have been traveling to the Hawaiian Islands since 1970. This Center is well done. Take time to look at the displays, photos, maps etc. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Interesting and fun!

Make sure and check-out the Heritage Center. Good history of Lanai. Simon is very helpful. Wonderful Google Earth display to help you see all over Lanai and plan your touring.

The outside looked interesting. In the center of this lovely small town. We wished the cultural center would have been open, but certainly understood because of Christmas Eve.

Visited Dec. 4th 9:00 am Located on Lanai Ave right across the street from Dole Park. Admission is FREE...A very good informative and interactive experience detailing the history & the culture of the Island of Lanai...Obviously, Pineapple has played a big role for the Island, but other interesting facts and details enlightens your knowledge of Lanai.

There is not, frankly, a whole lot to do on Lanai, so we were delighted, on a rainy day, to visit this cultural centre. Gave a great overview of the islands agricultural history.

We had a wonderful time here--the staff took so much time to answer our questions and we really learned a lot about the history of the island. This is a must visit for folks who want to not just visit Lana'i but learn about the culture, history, and people of the island.

We very much enjoyed our casual visit to the Lana'i Culture and Heritage Center! I never would have learned about the nuances of Hawaiian political history and more specifically about the history of Lana'i. The staff continued to answer our questions until a half hour after closing. I will be reading Queen Liliuokalani's autobiography at their enthusiastic recommendation!

Wonderful museum/heritage center. Very informative, great history and wonderful staff. (Was it Simon? Sorry I didn't write down his name but he was great!). There were certain sites that we tried to find on our own, such as the Petrogylphs at Shipwreck Beach. Turns out I was RIGHT there but didn't go up far enough after much searching. Had I... More
