The Baldwin Home is a recognizable landmark in the heart of historic Lahaina. The oldest house still standing on the island of Maui was built by Reverend Ephraim Spaulding between 1834-35. In 1836, Reverend Dwight Baldwin, and his family moved into the home. Rev. Baldwin was a graduate of Harvard College’s Medical School and Auburn Seminary. As Lahaina’s minister, he also served the islands of Moloka‘i, Lana‘i and Maui as government physician, dentist and veterinarian. You can see the tools of his trade in the extension that was his medical office.

As the second-largest island in the Hawaiian chain, Maui is home to less than 150,000 people. It makes up for its sparse population by drawing more than 2.4 million visitors per year, all of whom are drawn to its sparkling beaches, warm water, and lush tropical habitats. Polynesian and modern American lifestyles blend together in the Valley Isle. Maui’s legendary greenery, sprouting from fertile lava soil, has made it a popular place for hikes and scenic drives. Of course, its fascinating culture and history are also huge draws. Once you’ve arrived on the island, your Maui tour should kick off with the capital city, Wailuku, which is full of museums, pubs, and places to explore. Maui is not a large island, and in theory it’s easy to see all of it—after all, you can drive from one end t...

Weekend@NationalMuseum: Transforming Museum Experience Through Storytelling Despite enjoying growth in visitors Indonesia's museums continue to face a long-standing challenge: getting the public to engage more meaningfully with its collections beyond their use as eye-catching backgrounds for Sunday strolls and the ever-present selfie-shots. Conventional practice among many of the country's museums meant visitors are left to browse aimlessly in rooms after rooms of decades-old permanent exhibitions. Labeled with only the briefest and most technical of descriptions, the objects on display are often bewildering but for the most knowledgeable of archaeologists, ethnologists, and historians. Launched in 2013, dapoerdongeng's Weekend@NationalMuseum was quickly praised as "innovative" by the p...
Located next to Hawaii's largest working sugar factory in the historic plantation town of Puunene, Maui, the award-winning Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum is a marvelous repository of information and exhibits about one of the most significant and influential periods in Maui's history. Dedicated to preserving and presenting the history and heritage of Maui's sugar industry, the 1,800-square-foot Museum not only charts the establishment and growth of the industry, but looks at sugar's influence on the development of Maui's water resources and rich multi-ethnic make-up, and features intriguing displays on the inner workings of a sugar mill. http://www.mauitropicalvacations.com

Hey there! For info, click show more ▾ I visited Maui, Honolulu and Kona this winter in Hawaii, and it was absolutely gorgeous there. I did many fun things in Hawaii such as going to the beach, zip-lining, going on a submarine cruise, shopping, seeing a volcano, watching the sunset from a mountain, visiting museums, riding on a helicopter and much more. I decided to film my experience in Hawaii, and here it is. Filmed with: iPhone 6 Edited with: FCPX Intro made with: Ae (I did not make the intro myself.) Thanks for watching this video! Never let go of your wanderlust ~ a strong desire to travel♥
This great little store on Maui deserves a little free advertising from a fan. I bought two special shirts there.The designs are retro or classic prints re-issued. The "museum" means they are preserving the shirts for posterity by having them made as they used to be. I have no affiliation with them nor do they pay me to say this. I just love their shirts.Great place to see when on Maui!
