A nice historical review of the evolution of the island of Kauai and its people. A self guided tour with detailed written descriptions of each of the displays, covering the significant social, political and economic events of the Island. Enthusiasts of history will enjoy it, as is true with many museums, younger children will likely lose interest fairly soon.

I love history and museums, but sometimes a visit to the museum can eat up all day. At the Kauai museum good things come in smaller packages. It's not real big and you can see a lot in an hour (or less). It's staffed with folks who smile and are happy to help. I like to go to the museum and get a little back-story on places and then go have an adventure. There is lots of parking behind.

Museum is housed in an historic Hawaiian building. The displays ranged from describing life on the island to the impact of World War II on Hawaiians. Lots of mammal, birds, fish, and other island artifacts. Presented an overview of Kauai history through exhibits and films. Worth a stop if interested in island history.

This Museum is undergoing a decrease in space which is problematic because they offer so much to learn about. The building is historic & in good condition.The personnel are very nice & are knowledgeable about the history of Kauai & very willing to share their information. The gift shop offers a great variety of reading material, videos, music cds, and decorative & wearing apparel at reasonable prices & variety.

If you are interested in Hawaiin heritage this is a great place to visit. My wife and I enjoyed our time there. Not good for young kids as they would be bored.
