Always popular, a free-admission Whale Museum deepens island understanding with a colorful slice of whaling history.  The Whale Museum tells the story of the heyday of whaling in Lahaina (1825-1860) from the perspective of the seafarers themselves, with self-guided audio tours, daily films, scale models, artifacts, photo murals, graphic interpretations, whale tooth ivory objects, and scrimshaw.  The Whale Museum is open daily from 10am – 6pm.

Whalers Village is a short stroll from Kaanapali Alii in the world-famous Kaanapali Beach Resort.
