In the nice Whaler's Village Mall, the museum is currently closed (March 2016) and some of the shopping center itself as well. But there are plenty of stores and food establishments still open, and the mall is central to the nice hotels and restaurants along...More

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.
