I had no idea about the importance of Hawaii in the whaling industry in the 19th century... very entertaining and informative museum.
Unfortunately it is very small.
The ticket is 3 dollars for adults but gives you 3 hours in the parking lot, which would cost 18 dollars.

Whenever I go to Hawaii, we stay right next to Whaler's Village and it's so convenient for anything you could possibly need. Great shops, great food, and a cool museum as well!

Regretable decline in an old staple. They now charge for visits, have reduced hours, and customer service gone.

Whalers Village is one of the better place to walk, window shop, people watch, wine and dine, and hit the beach! What more can you ask for ! It has most of the local brands -Honolulu cookies ABC, tshirt souvenir stores, better quality brands - Roxy, Honolua, Sephora, and then it has the high end stores- Barron and Leeds, Louis Vuitton and now Lulu Lemon!
Parking is not a problem - park at their parking garage, then buy your snacks at Abc they will give you a 3 hour parking validation. Dine at their food court and they will do the same! Or dine at the bigger restaurants there -Hula Grill is one of our faves.
In the evenings they have local bands play music !
Lei Making is our favorite - go early so you can sign up by 11am on Tuesdays! Leave a tip since its free service!
This is the place where you can also catch the local Maui Bus to head down to the cannery mall or Front Street 4.00 dollars will get you a round trip and you don't need to worry about front street ( which is a pain!)
nothing else to do? Walk down the end of the mall and it opens up to Kaanapali beach !
Love this place!

Whaler's Village was a great little shopping and dining area that was in a perfect location near many hotels. They've done a great job in getting a good mix of retailers and restaurants. The activities offered in the courtyard was a really nice touch.
