This is a small museum located along Highway 550 next to the Lodge at Koke'e. It is worth a stop to see the exhibits and browse the gift shop on the way to the Kalalau Lookout.

A good stop that gave us a better idea of where we were standing. Staff very knowledgeable and recommended the nature trail right outside the museum. Time well spent after viewing the Kalalau Valley from above. Tasteful gifts and large assortment of Kauai books.

Just a few rooms, but there is a lot of information, about the local history, birds, land formation. They have a room that seems devoted to hurricanes that have struck the island--I'm old enough to remember Iniki, and I still learned more. Also, we stopped...More
