What a little gem. I learned a lot about Maui’s history. It has a great deal of info about the Maui Marines, The Fighting 4th. Don’t miss this historical informative place.

I came on a Saturday at noon. The museum was not open. Also, it's been moved to the second level, contrary to some directories. Looks interesting from the outside.

Interesting place for a museum. Packed with information about Maui and Hawaii in general. Things galore to buy, but most are quite expensive.
