Mission Statement

The Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and presenting the history and heritage of the sugar industry and the multi-ethnic plantation life which it engendered.

Description

The story of sugar on Maui is told at the Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum. We are the primary resource for information on the history of the sugar industry and its cultural heritage. We are located across from the 1902 Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. mill in what was once the thriving plantation town of Puunene. The museum is housed in one of the few historic buildings remaining from that era and contains exhibits about one of the most significant and influential periods in the Islands’ history. It presents information about the sugar industry, depicts sugar’s influence on the development of Maui’s water resources, and describes plantation community life and the multi-ethnic immigrants who came here to work for the plantations. It also features displays on the inner workings of a sugar mill.
