Wo Hing Museum
The Wo Hing Museum in Lahaina is one of those beautiful pieces of architecture that you will want to check out multiple times. It stands out for its modern angles and ornate detail. Besides its thoughtful design, the Wo Hing Museum is a peice of history with a very interesting backstory.
Many visitors are unaware that people of Chinese descent were pivitol in building Maui in the 1800s. Thousands of people came to Maui from China and the surrounding areas during this time to work on sugar plantations. They helped develop infrastructure and build out communities. In order to support each other in times of crisis and provide housing for the elderly, many came together to form the Wo Hing Society.
In the early 1900s, the Wo Hing Society built what is now the Wo Hing Museum to serve as a social meeting hall. This two level museum has been well preserved, and offers daily admission. We highly recommend checking out the Wo Hing Museum while you are in Lahaina. Admission is affordable, and you also get access to the Baldwin Home Museum when you purchase a ticket to the Wo Hing Museum.
