Was keen to visit this, but it is closed for renovation...in August 2017. I am not sure when it plans to re-open, but do some on-line research before you head in this direction

You get yourself a ticket and you get 1 hour free, but if you buy something in one of the stores, get your ticket validated and get another 3 hour parking free for a total of 4 hours.

There is a bus system on Maui. Check there website to see what the routes and schedules are. I don't know if they plan to have the museum rebuilt by then. It is currently a pile of dirt. The shopping is higher end shops.
