The Kaua`i Museum is celebrating our 53rd year, and we are proud to serve as a gathering place for people to actively learn about Kaua‘i’s and Ni‘ihau’s past, present and future. We strive to celebrate the history and culture of our island’s immigrant and indigenous ancestors and create an understanding to better our future.
The mission of the Kaua`i Museum is to inspire and promote in the community an appreciation and respect for the indigenous and immigrant people of Kaua`i and Ni`ihau and their cultural heritages by working in active cooperation with the indigenous and immigrant peoples to help sustain their respective cultures in the contemporary world; developing and preserving outstanding collections which reflect the heritage and artistic achievements of the indigenous and immigrant peoples; creating appropriate exhibits, publications, and educational programs which serve the indigenous and immigrant peoples and the general public; offering access to archives and artifacts for research; and providing an opportunity for artist to exhibit their creations which may be the artifacts of tomorrow.
