Nice small museum where you learn about the history of Lahaina and the surrounding area. Part of the historical walking tour.

We stopped by looking for something to do to make Lahania memorable. It had some interesting history. Stop and see the banyon tree.

Free, but request a $5 donation. For the price it has a great deal of historic pictures and information. Definitely worth seeing

The Lahaina Courthouse served as a customs house for whaling and trade ships as well as a centre for government offices and court functions during the Monarchy period. Constructed between 1858-1859. It stands at the edge of the Banyan park, which is a must see. Not a huge building, it was closed when we got there, but a multi-site ticket is available for this and other sites in the area.

This little courthouse is located right by the infamous Banyan tree in Lahaina. It contains many historic pieces and information about the history of the town/island. Admission is free and it doesn't take long to tour the exhibits.

A quaint and small museum exhibit covers some of the history of Hawaii and the Lahaina area, interesting and only takes 20-30 mins to look through. We’ll worth it on a stop in Lahaina. There is also an art gallery and gift shop downstairs.

We strolled through the open doors of a living history book and we learned so much about the beginnings of the town.

The courthouse was built with coral stones and wood from the unfinished palace of Kamehameha III when it was destroyed by a windstorm. It also served as a Customs House for whaling and commercial ships. It was built in the 1850s in the area where the Old Fort is located. In 1898, the Hawaiian flag was removed, and the American flag raised when the United States annexed the islands of Hawaii. Renovated in 1925, it is now home to a small art gallery, gift shop, visitor center and a heritage museum. The building faces Lahaina harbor.
