The Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum in Maui provides information about the history of the island's sugar industry and its impact on Hawaii's culture today. The museum was established in 1980 to educate visitors about the sugar industry and to memorialize Samuel T. Alexander and Henry Perrine Baldwin, who founded the Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. sugar company.
Visitors can see the geography room, which explains the influence of Maui's geography on the sugar industry, and the water room, which shows how water was transported to the island's isthmus for sugar production. The human resources room has information about the individuals who established the sugar industry in Maui, and the plantation room and field work room have displays about plantation life. The museum also has a few outdoor exhibits that allow visitors to see the historical equipment used on sugar plantations. Some of these artifacts include vintage tractors and an outdoor oven from the 1920s.
The Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day except major holidays. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $2 for children 12 and under.
