Nice people ran the cultural center, but there wasn't much there. Lots of photos of people with only their names, but without any description to know how they were important to Hana.
This is a great place to visit if you are in the area. An enormous amount of interesting stuff in a very small place. The exhibits may apparently change this year, so hopefully more of the same.
Hana’s Population in 2010: 2,291: this is not Honolulu (2010 population: 337,256) and this is not the Bishop Museum ($17.95 ‘required’ admission).

True, there's not a lot to do in Hana, but don't waste your time going to this tiny museum near Hana Bay. There's just not much here! They want something like $3 to look a a few quilts and old bottles in their one-room "museum". The only thing, in my opinion, of any interest at all is the courthouse next... More
