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.

Iraivan Temple

Iraivan Temple is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva on the Kauai Island, Hawaii. Maintained by Kauai’s Hindu monastery, this impressive structure is said to be the first all-stone, white granite structure built in the Western Hemisphere. A magnificent six-sided, single pointed uncut quarts crystal, believed as one of the largest one ever found of its kind forms the centerpiece of this beautiful place. Located near the Wailua River, it is among the must-visit places in Hawaii.

Waioli Mission District

A complex of enduring structures, Waioli Mission District offers a glimpse at Hanalei's history and heritage. Along with the Mission House itself, it features the rebuilt Waioli Hui‘ia Church and Mission Hall. Dating from the 19th Century, the mission house today serves as a local history museum which provides an insight into the lives of the Wilcox Family. Though the house has been reconstructed, the décor, furnishings, and artifacts remain virtually the same. If you're someone who enjoys reliving the past, the minimal donation fee that you pay for the tour is well worth the experience that you get after spending some time here.

Waiʻoli Huiʻia Church

Steeped in history, Waiʻoli Huiʻia Church features a striking visage, its gabled roof and adjoining tower creating a harmonious blend of religious splendor and architectural wonder. Bearing allusions to the American Gothic style, its exterior evokes a sense of veneration, a feeling only strengthened upon stepping past the threshold and marveling at the simple yet noteworthy interior. The revered landmark, in its present form, dates from 1912, its construction attributed to the Wilcox brothers who commissioned a church building on the grounds of the Waioli Mission District. Owing to its history and significance in terms of the Mission's past, the church is regarded as a prominent destination in Hanalei.
