Lanai Culture & Heritage Center, Lanai City

4.8
The Lāna'i Culture & Heritage Center (Lāna'i CHC) is a 501c3 non-profit charitable community organization organized through a Memorandum of Agreement-partnership between the Lāna'i Archaeological Committee, Hui Malama Pono o Lāna'i, Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Department of Land & Natural Resources, members of Lāna'is' community, and Castle & Cooke Resorts, LLC. The Lāna'i CHC seeks to collect, document and share the history of Lāna'i with residents and visitors. The center includes artifacts of Hawaiian origin collected through archaeological investigations, and by plantation employees over the years found while working the fields with plow and hoe. Historical plantation era documents and family memorabilia have also been donated to the Lāna'i CHC. These combined collections represent the cultural diversity of the island and enable us to share of Lāna'i's history—remembering those people who have come before us, and upon whose successes we stand.

  • Great little museum. Not to be missed if you are in Lanai City. Staff were super friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I worked the pineapple fields on Lanai 40 years ago, telling them that opened them up and they showed me an extra video.
  • Stunning display. The history of Lāna'i is highlighted and celebrated with such amazingly quality. The exhibits are informative and extremely intriguing. The Museum Guide Shelly was highly educated and even took the time to explain the designs on the t-shirt we bought as it related to the island's history. A quaint part of the island where you are able to merge the cultural value of the center with your visit to the island. Mahalo!
