Small but interesting

The museum is small but contains some interesting local artifacts. The tiny historic courthouse on the grounds is still in use but also serves as an exhibit.

We stayed in Hana for two nights. Stopped here several times and it was closed. Finally went by and it was open . The woman told us that it was run solely by volunteers . This is probably why it is open sporadically .

Tried to visit but everything was locked up. From a brief look around the outside (and a peek into the tiny courthouse) the place looked interesting, but couldn't really tell.

What the Hana Cultural Center is is a community's history. Among the artifacts and memorabilia in this small museum is a collection of compelling photographic portraits of this small town's people. This place is a must visit in Hana.

After having lunch at the bay, my daughter and I stopped here and were pleasantly surprised. The exhibits were fascinating and explained a lot about the cultural history of Hana. Not to be missed is the tiny old courthouse which is still in use today!

We tried to stop here but it looked closed for quite some time. There was no one there and the doors looked as though they hadn't been open in quite some time. Disappointed...

I went with some friends and I must say I enjoyed learning from the locals about the Hawaiian culture of the area- it was a truly amazing experience. The people who were manning the cultural centre when we visited were very much like the other locals we had met who were very laid back and friendly and eager to share... More

I looked up Hana Cultural Center and Museum online (visited their website, which indicates that it's open Monday - Friday 10 AM - 4 PM), and we decided to visit on Monday, August 10, around 1 PM. Saw the sign for the museum, so we were in the right place ... but there was no other car, nobody else there.... More
