I very much enjoyed the Lanai Culture & Heritage Center as a museum of island history along with items available for purchase to study in more detail later. The people were very kind and knowledgeable.

The place to go for local history. Going back to the very beginnings of the island, there are wonderful exhibits of old artifacts to more modern pieces. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. A MUST visit!

My sister and I visited on April 17th. I think we were the only people there at the time so it was very quiet and we could take all the time we wanted reading the various exhibits. We found it quite interesting.
