Interesting piece of history here about Sun Yat-Sen, the Chinese in Hawaii and worth a visit to the Thomas Edison footage

We were on a walk in Lahaina and wandered into the museum.We spent time being well educated on various dynasty art, currency and all around culture. The $7 entry fee was worth it.

Shop and museum with the theatre next door. It’s pretty small and has a statue outside. Pop in for a bit of Chinese history and see what you come out with.

Visited, for its historical background connects to the founding father (Sun Yat-Sen) of China. Nice video played at the cookhouse.

A small museum that will be of interest to see the Chinses influence and history in Hawaii. The museum is rather small - the exhibits can be viewed in a relatively short time (under an hour). The historic Thomas Edison era Hawaii movies were the...More

Another reviewer described this as small but quaint. Exactly. This museum won't take much time, but is filled with interesting artifacts. The history of Chinese in Lahaina and the ties to Sun Yat-sen are fascinating. The old Thomas Edison movies are a highlight. We were...More

Not that I remember, but there was a lot of information in the museum and I might have missed that fact. The court house museum might address that question.
