The Story of Hawaii Museum is a singular and unique experience that combines history, geography, cartography and historical artifacts of the Hawaiian Islands to create a wonderfully educational and entertaining experience. The museum provides an overview and orientation to Hawaii and the many peoples and nations who have helped to shape her heritage.
The museum covers periods and subjects ranging from the daring exploits of Polynesian navigators of pre-history to the maps of the islands made by early explorers, the Monarchy, Territorial days, World War II, Statehood and the Golden Era of the Matson Cruise Line.
The highlight of the new location at the first level of Queen Kaahumanu Center in Kahului is an expanded display about the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor including a rare Japanese war situation room map and an initial draft of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Day of Infamy" address to the nation.
