Great history lesson. Pass was good for 7 days. Bought several gift shop items of good quality. Small quaint venue.

We visited the museum while biding our time before we had to go to the airport. We will visit again as there was not enough time to take in the great amount of information. Truly a place to learn much of Hawaii and Kaua'i's history.

The Kauai Museum is saturated in history! So interesting to learn about the various aspects over the centuries that make Kauai the beautiful island that it is today. Love the section on surfing! It provides a more recent (yet important) part of what draws people...More
