Auntie Uli'i is a treasure and the museum has great artifacts and history for those us who are students of hula and/or are interested in the sovereign history of Hawai'i. Go and spend an afternoon. It is well worth it.

This was a bright spot on an otherwise dreary day (imagine that in paradise!). We ended up spending about 2 hours (including shopping) in this small but packed facility and sat in on a 30 minute presentation about how various peoples came to the island.

It was well worth the small entry fee with beautiful artwork and much information about the Hawaiian islands and Kauai/ you can easily spend several hours there.
