We just happened to stop here as my son takes Mandarin. The owner was so kind as she was closing but wanted to take the time to talk with him. She stayed open longer and took us by hand and showed us so many pieces of history. Who knew Hawaii had such a Chinese connection. If you stop in go... More

The museum celebrates that the Chinese were among Hawaii's earliest immigrants; Wo Hing was one of the societies they formed, and society members built the temple. There are several outstanding artifacts on display, including a Taoist altar that is simply breathtaking. There is... More

This museum offers so much rich history of the Chinese in Hawaii. I've attended many events such as Chinese New Years, the Kite Festival and others. Each time I learn something new.

We went in and everything but the tourist trap shop was roped off. I'm sure if we could have seen more it would be very interesting

One of the attendants showed us around and it made all the difference. He was very knowledgeable not only about the artefacts displayed but also about the Chinese history and various dynasties. Worth a visit.

As part of the Passport to the past, I found this museum very interesting. The are some beautiful pieces in the Museum and don't forget to check out the table. This museum displays the impact the Chinese had on Maui and its development. There is an additional building toward the back that was the cook house that has videos of... More

We entered here after walking the rest of Front street and not finding anything particularly interesting. I paid the $8 entrance fees and got access to some Chinese antiques. They were unimpressive but I made the point to look at them all. We then went to the old cook house which had been re-purposed into a theatre that shows movies... More
