  • A bit of a jumble— could use some structure. A lot of the signage is difficult to read—poorly lit, in an awkward location, small print, etc. A fair bit is redundant—that is part of the organizational....  more

  • Although not conducting tours right now, the docent was very friendly and willing to share information.

  • Great museum! It's $15 for adults, $10 for students to get in. Your ticket gives you admission for seven days, so that's a great bonus! The museum is actually very large, being housed in two buildings. One is the traditional information, the other includes WW2, modern surfing, and historic information. The staff are friendly and helpful, and this museum is DEFINITELY worth a visit.
  • Little museum near the airport with interesting exhibits on the early history of Kauai, its peoples, canoe plants they brought, their social activities and political intrigue. There's a second building with exhibits on Kauai's unique geology, WWII, plantation life and surfers. Friendly staff, neat place to learn about the island before your other adventures.
