I was sitting under the banyan trees in the square listening to music and popped into the courthouse for something to do. Worth a short visit.

Nice museum and lots of interesting artifacts and photos. You can really get a feel for Old Lahaina and island living. Great diversion from beach and swimming, especially on a rainy day.

Building is full of photos of the Lahaina's history with great descriptions and stories. It's wonder to visit a place as beautiful as Lahaina but its makes it so much more interesting when you know the history behind it. The basement has the original jail...More

This is a great museum that doesn't take too long to visit. It is right on the waterfront and just before you reach the banyan tree. The museum is free and contains many artifacts of the island's history. There is a nice gift shop and...More
