We just walked into this museum and did not take the tour. Thus, we were restricted to just the front part of the building, which contained a number of different Chinese artifacts. We were there for just a few minutes. Apparently, you would need to...More

Interesting piece of history here about Sun Yat-Sen, the Chinese in Hawaii and worth a visit to the Thomas Edison footage

We were on a walk in Lahaina and wandered into the museum.We spent time being well educated on various dynasty art, currency and all around culture. The $7 entry fee was worth it.

Shop and museum with the theatre next door. It’s pretty small and has a statue outside. Pop in for a bit of Chinese history and see what you come out with.

This “museum” will take you maybe 20 minuets to explore. I wasn’t a big fan, but then again there isn’t a lot of stuff to engage with. Some good artifacts and history about the Chinese and their migration to work in Maui’s sugarcane fields. If...More

Visited, for its historical background connects to the founding father (Sun Yat-Sen) of China. Nice video played at the cookhouse.

Not that I remember, but there was a lot of information in the museum and I might have missed that fact. The court house museum might address that question.
