We have driven by the museum many times during our multiple stays in Maui and finally we made a point to stop in. Extremely reasonable admission and a terrific history lesson. Will now look at Maui with a different perspective.

Just a quick stop to learn about what drove the economy before tourism. Not more than an hour needed. Our teens like it and were surprised (as we were too) to see how sugar was harvested and made. Nice building too.

Several of the other museums we went to focused a lot on more ancient history. This museum had more recent history and focused a lot on the melting pot of Hawaii. Interesting artifacts and very cool pieces of equipment.

This museum was very interesting! I had no idea about the sugar industry here, nor that is closed so recently. The museum does a great job of explaining the sugar industry and how it shaped Maui.

A really well presented museum about the history of sugar production. Exhibits cover the process of making sugar but also the lives of the workers and the development of the community. Well worth stopping by.
