We thought this was a very cool place to explore. Make sure you read the rules inmates had to abide by. Not far from the beaten path this is worth your time for a quick visit.

Pretty neat to see, but really not too much to it. Be sure to read the story of the prison when you get there. I will say that I saw my very first Mango tree when we stopped here!

It doesn't take much to walk to the old prison from the old courthouse on prison street. Inside is a courtyard that, today, they use for events. We found it interesting to see the list of crimes of those jailed.

We love this place for the sheer history and the stories you can hear. It's an easy walk from Lahaina and the grounds are beautifully kept. You can just feel all the history here and if you're lucky, the caretakers will regail you with stories...More

This is a free attraction and will not take very long to view. It is interesting to see the prison grounds with the cells and coral walls.

Want to know how many people were arrested for riding their horse under the influence? They have those stats in posters on the walls. It is a quick stop without a charge and is a neat walkthrough. I recommend it.

Found this by accident while walking in Lahaina. Has some history behind it. Could use more boards to read about the history and more displays
