Aloha!

Did you know...

• Most of the sugar plantation workers brought musical instruments to Hawaii from the country they came from to entertain and relax after working in the sugar fields all day. Many formed their own band and played for parties, weddings, and their country holidays. We have an exhibit at the museum showing some of the instruments brought to Hawaii. Come visit and see the instruments.

Question of the Month: What does Hakalau mean?
