This was a very enjoyable experience. The tour guide was very informative, funny, and interactive. They had umbrellas to borrow as it was raining so it did not inhibit our enjoyment of the village. There are examples of living quarters for the immigrant groups that...More

After reading that this is Oahu's only living history museum, and seeing all of the positive reviews, I was really excited to visit. What I didn't realize was: 1. The buildings are scaled-down replicas 2. The tours seem to vary dramatically between docents. On our...More

We learned a lot about the many cultures brought to Hawaii to work the plantations. Our docent, Take, was outstanding. The tour lasted just under two hours, primarily due to Take taking the time to answer our questions with interesting stories.
