Great place to visit if for no reason than to get in out of the heat. Some interesting exhibits and a neat little gift shop with some unique "historically oriented" books and gifts. Don't miss the video about the whales and the ocean.

This is a great museum located right on the waterfront next to the Banyon Tree in Lahaina. Lots of great exhibits on the history of the town and it's whaling history. There is no charge so this is something everyone should try when visiting Lahaina.

This spot houses both a museum and galleries. The museum portion is upstairs and shows life in Maui and a overview of the legal system as it was in old times. The galleries are located on the main floor and and the lower jail area. If you need to beat the heat of Lahaina got to the lower area as its generally cool. Worth a visit

Great place to brush up or learn about Hawaiian history. Very well maintained and super interesting. Nice view of the harbor and banyon tree from upstairs balconies Worth a walk-through!

This museum told us much about the history of the island. The artefacts were well presented with a clear explanation. We also did much shopping in the excellent market outside under the banyan tree!
