Vacations, especially in the summer, are the perfect time to unwind. However, this is also an excellent time to expand your horizons and learn something new. For anyone planning a getaway with Kauai Exclusive Management, maybe that means learning common Hawaiian words and phrases or trying a new cuisine at a local food truck. Another fantastic option is to learn about local history by visiting some of the museums on Kauai.

5 Spots to Learn about Kauai History

Kauai is not only home to picturesque beaches and stunning waterfalls. This island is also home to a rich history. Take time on your vacation to learn about the events and people that shaped the island into what it is today by visiting some of the fascinating museums found all over Kauai.

Kaua’i Museum

Located in Lihue, the Kaua’i Museum is home to a variety of exhibits, both permanent and seasonal, that highlight the local culture, arts, and history of Kauai. Ever since this spot opened to the public in 1960, it has played a large role in cultural preservation on Kauai.

Koke’e Natural History Museum

Within Koke’e State Park is the Koke’e Natural History Museum. Open daily, this museum is a great place to learn about the island’s natural and cultural history. It is home to botanical prints made by Isabella Sinclair and the perfect spot to learn more about the park’s trails.

Kilohana Plantation

Give yourself plenty of time to visit the Kilohana Plantation. The best way to explore the former estate and plantation is by booking a seat on the train ride. The 2.5-mile rail line takes you past stands of sugarcane and taro as well as groves of mangos and pineapple.

Wai’oli Church & Mission House

Minutes from Princeville is the Wai’oli Hui’ia Chruch and Mission House. Once the home of Christian missionaries in the 1800s, this landmark is open for rous on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. 

Grove Farm
