Must-See Museums on Maui

The majority of Maui’s history-focused museums are housed in well-preserved historic buildings. If you’re interested in learning about what life in Maui used to be like, check out some of these must-see museums. 

Baldwin Home Museum

Located in a historic house, the Baldwin Home Museum in Lahaina offers visitors a glimpse into 19th-century Maui. The collection exhibits memorabilia from the original owner—a physician by the name of Reverend Dwight Baldwin—and intricate period furnishings.

Hale Hōʻikeʻike at the Bailey House

Run by the Maui Historical Society, Hale Hōʻikeʻike at the Bailey House boasts the largest collection of Hawaiian artefacts in the country. Exhibits showcase ancient fishing and cooking tools alongside Missionary and Plantation Era artefacts, and royal memorabilia.

Hana Cultural Center and Museum

If you're interested in Maui’s customs and traditions, don't miss this museum. Here, you'll find a large collection of items used in daily life and worship; a replica of a chief's compound from pre-contact times; and a historic courthouse that's still in use. 

Makawao History Museum

Dedicated to preserving the history of the little town of Makawao, the lilliputian Makawao History Museum has an everchanging programme of exhibits. Past exhibits have focused on everything from plantation life to locally-made stick horses.

Wo Hing Museum

Once a community center for Chinese workers on the island, the restored Wo Hing Museum reveals what life was like on the island a century ago. There’s a temple and an old cookhouse, and a community kitchen that doubles as a cinema that shows films about Hawaiian life.
