You'll learn about Maui's most influential periods throughout history in the 1,800 square-foot museum. The museum is split into several rooms where travelers will learn about the plantation, field work, geography and mills. There are also outdoor exhibits where visitors can get a peek at historic equipment built in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
It's Hawaii - of course there is stunning outdoor recreation! Drive your Kahului car rental to the Kanaha Beach Park where white-sand beaches and crystal clear waters will greet you. This publicly owned land is ideal for pole fishing, canoeing or jogging. Visitors may also enjoy the Kanaha Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary, which is an important breeding ground for three endangered Hawaiian birds: the stilt, coot and Hawaiian duck. King Kapiiohookalani built the pond in the 1700s for storing and fattening fish. Officially designated a bird refuge in 1951, Kanaha Pond was also named a registered natural landmark in 1971.
