About The Sugar Museum

The Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum has artifacts and photos telling the history of sugar growing and manufacturing on Maui. Sugar was commercially grown on Maui from 1835 to 2016.  (Most commercial pineapple production ended in 2009.)  Six separate rooms in the sugar museum have exhibits and information about how sugar relates to Maui’s geography and weather, water, human resources, plantations, fieldwork, and mills.  There are also large old sugar harvesting machines in the surrounding yard.  A video explains the process of turning cane into sugar.

The museum is in a historic former plantation superintendent’s home, built in 1902.  It’s open Monday through Thursday from 10 AM to 200 PM, except holidays.  Small admission charge (discount for seniors and children).
