Museums & Galleries

Originally used as a Customs House and Courthouse, this island landmark was built on a USD7,000 budget with stones from the Hale Piula. It was also used as a center for royal festivities and celebrations until 1898, when Hawai'i became a United States territory. Major renovations added a modern veneer to the historic building. The Courthouse is no longer the center of government activity on the island, as Wailuku is now the county seat. Instead, it is a visitor attraction and historic landmark, housing a gift shop and information center.
