Apparently admission is normally $5, but we got in free as part of the cost of our guided river and waterfall tour, and we spent about 20 minutes in the village, which didn't feel like quite enough time to see everything. I thought at first that the village was going to be very hokey and some parts of it kind of are, but once inside, it was actually quite interesting, with a variety of restored structures based on what is supposed to have been the actual site of an ancient Hawaiian village. There was information provided about how the various buildings were used - some for governance, some for giving birth, some for ceremonies, etc. It just provided a small glimpse into some aspects of that village's traditional Hawaiian culture and history, but it was enjoyable and low-key, which is what we were in the mood for that day. There were also lovely peacocks strutting about and a sleepy cat on a chair at the entrance as we were leaving.
