Absolutely fascinating! I learned so much while here about Hawaii's culture, history, geology and ecosystems, I'm so glad to have come.

This museum was absolutely stunning. We spent about 3.5-4 hours and it felt like we barely scratched the surface. We watched the Lava Demonstration and did a guided tour of the Hawaiian Hall. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting and wanting to learn more about the island. It was like a science, cultural and art museum rolled into one.
