Koke'e Natural History Museum

Located inside Koke'e State Park, this museum is not as obscure as it could be. Both Koke'e and neighboring Waimea Canyon State Park are top Kauai attractions. Of the many people that find their way to the park, more than 100,000 visit the museum, which is open 365 days a year and charges no admission. Its purpose is to educate tourists about the ecology and geology of Kauai. The museum's attractions include informative displays on the island's indigenous flora, fauna, and geology. You can engage in various activities, including guided nature walks, informative lectures, and interactive workshops.

Kauai Museum

There are two parts to this museum. Every aspect of the island's history, starting at its formation and winding up at present, is covered in the permanent exhibit in the Rice Building. Historic displays include ancient artifacts, scientific diagrams, and turn-of-the-century photographs. The Wilcox Building houses the Mezzanine Gallery, which features an ever-changing display of works by professional and amateur local artists, as well as other exhibits and the gift shop. The museum-sponsored events are geared toward the local community and tourists.

Ambrose's Kapuna Surf Gallery

One of the more noticeable structures along the coconut coast, this art gallery is housed in a brightly painted wooden structure across the street from area shopping centers. The building and the reputation of the occupant it has gained a lot of attention from the likes of TV and media broadcasts. The shop is a hybrid of original art and surfboard shaping that includes a large dose of personal philosophy and surfing insight. Do not be surprised if an impromptu surf session will result in the shop being closed for the day. - Lottie Tagupa
