Greeted by a really friendly volunteer who asked us where we were from and to sign the visitors book, this is a well put together museum, very informative about the buildings history and uses. A very enjoyable and interesting way to spend a morning.

Took my family to see the history of the Fort and when Hawaii was attacked. It is free and worth your time if at the beach. The beach next to the museum is quiet as well.
