The staff (one lady) went thru and made sure that we saw everything. She must had been a teacher. The restored sugar mill is eye opening.
This little sugar mill was a fascinating look into the past. I learned how sugar was manufactured from the cane. When we were there they had a display of historic photos from Kalaupapa. There are very few opportunities to see a restored time capsule as opposed to a recreation. I found it well worth the visit.
The mule ride to the leper colony wasn't available when we were there, so we had to be satisfied with the relatively short walk to the Kalaupapa viewpoint & a stop at this museum to see a photo display, watch a documentary & read the stories of the people sent to the leper colony 70-odd years ago - we felt... 更多
Our group of 4 enjoyed our stop at this museum for a small $5 fee per person. The gentleman that oversees the place is very nice and knowledgeable. We spent about an hour here, give or take a few minutes. Inside the museum we watched a couple of DVD's (one 15 mins. the other 6 mins.) about the Sugar Mill... 更多
My husband & I visited the museum in May 2016 while on an island tour. Interesting but small museum about the history of the island. Many pictures of prior inhabitants. You really get a feel for how life was not all that long ago for people on Molokai. View an old sugar mill that appears to be in restoration. Worthwhile... 更多
We enjoyed a lovely evening here at a pa'ina feast, sampling dozens of different foods, and listening to authentic musicians and watching authentic foods. VERY different from the Las Vegas style luau at the Hilton :) The people were gracious and we felt lucky to have had this experience.
Take time to see the movie, it makes the rest of the experience worth while. Current photographic exhibit is worth the time to see also. Excellent small gift shop. On an island where there aren't many attractions this is worth the time. We got a kick out of the jeep rusting away in the parking lot.
This is Molokai so don't expect the Met. But if you want to understand the working of a rudimentary sugar cane process, you will come out the wiser and walking on green grass after the west side- comforting. The inside of the gift shop and visitors center has fascinating pictures and time lines featuring the isolated area on Molokai for... 更多
Small museum, mostly photos of the residents of the leper colony going back decades. Two short videos: 10 minutes or so on the history of the Myer family that built the sugar mill and it's restoration; 6 minutes on pictures and history of some of the residents of the colony. The sugar mill is almost completely restored and very interesting.... 更多
$5.00 admission. 2 short films to see, we lost interest and started to tour the building. Most of this museum is photos. Nice sea shell collection and the gift shop has some quality items. The sugar mill is out back, a short walk from the main building. Self guided w/brochure.
