What is there to do?

Koke'e Natural History Museum is a small museum but with a big heart in Kauai (and it's open 365 days a year!) This charming museum (with a stunning view!) features interpretive programs and exhibitions all about Kaua'i' s ecology, geology and climatology.

In fact, they offer a great overview of the natural and cultural history that highlights the unique story of one of the most beautiful places on the planet!

Within the exhibits, you can see valuable botanical prints dating back to 1885, as well as mounted native forest birds and game animals. Get up close to nature as you see and feel samples of wood from the forest trees, with many actually only found on the Hawai'ian islands!

If you want to explore the region after your visit, the Kokee Natural History Museum also provides basic information on trail conditions in Waimea Canyon and Koke'e State Parks. Keep that adventure going!

There is a trail map on the museum porch, where you can narrow down your options

With fun events across the year too, including festivals and hands-on workshops, the Koke'e Natural History Museum is a celebration and discovery of the wonderful and unique natural history of the region!
