Welcome To Kauai Museum

The Kaua`i Museum is synonymous with the word "aloha" in every sense of the word. One only needs to step inside to return to a world of Hawaiian culture and its rich history. As we celebrate our 55th year, we are proud to serve as a welcoming space for people to actively gather and learn about the past. Through Hawaii "talk story," live concerts, hula, Hawaiian craft-making demonstrations, cultural lectures and the study of precious artifacts, visitors instantly become enveloped in a celebration of the Kauai'i and Ni'ihau immigrant and indigenous ancestors. With a vigilant eye toward continual development and preservation of outstanding collections reflecting the Hawaiian heritage, as well as a commitment to enlightening educational programs and access to archives for the purpose of research,the Kauai Museum offers a highly-respected and invaluable kaleidoscope into the world of "aloha." Its a world like no other with endless opportunities to learn, evolve and savor what made Hawaii a treasured world long ago and today.
Eiwa Street is now open for one way traffic.
Museum parking is still accessible from Rice Street or Hardy Street. 
Contact the museum at 808-245-6931 for more info.
