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.

First time to Kauai, and the museum was fantastic. Wonderful displays and history of your beautiful state, culture, and people. It was complete with reminiscent of our New Mexico Native culture and history. We really enjoyed it even though we were running late.

I've been to the museum several times and always enjoy it. I am a history buff and seeing artifacts from the "pre contact", whaling, and missionary days makes the history come to life. The gift shop has a nice assortment of books on Hawaii, and...More

Yes, it's a small museum so it depends on how in depth you want to get. We were there about an hour and a half, partly because we stopped to listen to a lecture that was going on.
