The museum is a converted mansion and school. There is featured displays like the Ni'ihau Shell Lei Oct. 26 through Jan 27 2014. It was wonderful to see this display and read how these lei's are made and the significance they had and still have to the makers and recipients. The permanent displays of Hawaii history from first contact and the ancient Hawaiin religion to the end of the Monarchy system is very nice. Most of the displays are geared to school children but still nice enough to inform adults. For those who find cultural information about Hawaii, their daily life centered on hunting, gathering, cultivating, preparing and storing their food and making beautiful objects for daily life as well as religious ceremonies, and also a peek into the political aspects of the rise and fall of the Hawaiin Kingdom a good thing to learn about, this is the place to start in.
