The village is really a shop mall but the museum was informative and small but worth the visit with good places to eat on the beach

Nice place to shop. In the past, the stores seemed to be very end shopping, but now they have a variety of price range stores. They have a huge ABC Store that has something for everyone.

This is an outdoors shopping mall pretty much with some high end stores, restaurants and an ABC store. It's right by the beach and it has parking garage. It was too hot out to consider walking around more than we needed to before and after...More

We went to see the whaler's village museum. It's closed as they are relocating it. So you have a shopping village. Views are great and easy to get around. Parking is a challenge. Get a ticket upon entry and pay on way out. Parking spaces...More

We had to make a pick up at the Maui Diver jewelry store and we had never visited this shopping Plaza before. We enjoyed watching the Hula lessons they were giving to the guests! A lot of nice stores! Loved the Hula Grille just outside...More

So fascinating, the Whalers Village and Museum offers artifacts, insights, art, collectibles, boutiques, bodegas, amazing restaurants and ocean views. Very fun and colorful.

Shells, necklaces, items you can't get elsewhere....we loved this village for all that there was to see and do. Food courts - etc. What can I add? Come and see.

We shopped here. My friends can't stopped looking and moving from one store to another. Their corals and pearls are great. We all went with sets of pearl jewelries on hand. Can't wait to wear them!

A nice activity to escape the beach/pool for a couple hours and learn a little history. A nice surprise.

You get yourself a ticket and you get 1 hour free, but if you buy something in one of the stores, get your ticket validated and get another 3 hour parking free for a total of 4 hours.

There is a bus system on Maui. Check there website to see what the routes and schedules are. I don't know if they plan to have the museum rebuilt by then. It is currently a pile of dirt. The shopping is higher end shops.
