The Lahaina Plantation Museum

A walk through Lahaina's plantation era.
October 30, 2015

If you're considering moving into one of our beautiful Maui homes in West Maui, you might also be interested in learning more about the area and its history. The Plantation Museum is an excellent opportunity for visitors and residents alike to learn about the plantation era and how families once lived their day to day lives on Maui.

Situated along Front Street, the Plantation Museum is home to a collection of heirlooms, appliances, and tools that were typically found in family homes and plantation camps.  Beginning in 1860, the Plantation Era remained active in Lahaina until 1999, and although the plantation lifestyle may have changed since its start many years ago, the cultivation of sugarcane still continues today.

The Plantation Museum is open daily from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM and admission is free! After diving into a bit of Maui history, explore Front Street and all of the nearby shops and restaurants. Thanks for reading and feel free to contact me if you have any interest in any of the beautiful West Maui real estate listings!
