With a heavy heart filled with so much regret and sorrow, I would like to post a 4-star review on Wo Hing Society Hall, being one of the most surprising hidden gems in Lahaina.

It felt like just yesterday when I visited this place in February 2023. It was a very small museum, but it was filled with interesting relics and antiquities. Among others, a jade belt, and a scroll of declarations called “The Fundamentals of National Reconstruction”, signed off by Dr. Sun Yat-Sin.

I was especially taken to see a few Sanxingdui relics, including one of its signature bronze masks that shocked the archaeological world when the site was first discovered. I never expected to see them outside China. I was really happy listening to their owner, a senior collector and enthusiast of Chinese ancient civilization, as he shared his knowledge about the stories behind all those ancient treasures.

It was fascinating to see a kitchen/meeting hall next to it. They looked similar to those set up during the 19th century's Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia too. I remember seeing my grandparents using similar cookware when I was little.

I wish I had more time at this museum, but our conversation was unfortunately disrupted by my young daughter’s meltdown due to high temperature and humidity.

Sadly, everything in this museum is now destroyed and burned down into ashes in the fire last month. I don’t even know whether all the volunteers there survive the fire at this point. I feel so regretful that I will never see the museum again.

So far, I have not found the names of anyone tending to any Lahaina museums/temples on the victim list. They genuinely loved serving and volunteering in these museums. I can only keep them and their families in my prayers...

I hope sharing of my photos means something here.

A piece of history that describes the intersection between Chinese, Hawaiian, and American lives. I understand there is geopolitical and cultural conflict in today's environment. However, this museum focuses on common ground that I feel most can relate despite one's cultural or social backgrounds. Humans are just humans, and there is more in common than differences if we are willing to be empathetic.

The curator Dr. Yip is very friendly and knowledgeable. The price of admission is $8 per adult, but you get a PhD that gives you a tour. A small building but it it is packed with history. People are willing to spend hundreds to look at pineapples, so $8 for a doctor to give a personal tour of Chinese Hawaiian American history is worth it.

I would highly recommend this place if you are in this area.

This is a must see destination. Except for native Hawaiians or American Indians, all of us can relate to the immigrant story either directly or from stories of our ancestors.
This was much more interesting than we expected. Even though we came back the next day, there wasn’t enough time in our schedule to thoroughly look at the artifacts, etc after seeing the 1 hour film. I’ll be back next time I am in Maui.
Dr. Busaba Yip, cultural director and docent at the Wo Hing Museum, Society Hall and Cookhouse, was very friendly and knowledgeable. (She's even in the film.)

This small, but truly amazing, museum documents the long history of Chinese immigrant life on Maui, as well as the island's role in modern international geopolitics as an incubator of Sun Yat-Sen & his group of idealistic Chinese revolutionary reformers (in the early 1900s, prior to the current Communist regime). We were treated to an informative & fascinating partial tour by Dr. Busaba Yip, PhD, the museum's cultural director. The museum houses an impressive collection of ancient Chinese antiquities. Don't miss this wonderful "East Meets West" cultural treasure!

The first hall dated to the late 1800s, but was replaced in the early 20th century with the current two-story building on Front Street. Upstairs is a temple with an altar for religious ceremonies. Downstairs was the social hall, which serves as museum space and a gift shop. Engraved on the calligraphy boards around the temple are characters for Wo, meaning “peace and harmony” and Hing, which means “prosperity.”
Next to the walkway in the front yard is a bronze bust and marble pedestal monument to Dr. Sun Yat-sen, courtesy of The Sun Yat-sen Foundation for Peace and Education. From 1879 to 1910, he made six trips to Maui and spent more than seven years in the islands preparing for the 1911 Chinese revolution. Good building to look round, but unfortunately not open when we got there!

Recently went to this museum. When we arrived we asked to use the restroom and was told they don’t have one. Daughter has a physical disability. The lady was rude! Wouldn’t a museum be required to have a public restroom?

Our good friend Dennis Ryan is the Docent and major contributor here and we went in to see his new exhibits for the Year of the Tiger. Fascinating!! Amazing artifacts dating back thousands of years! Dennis knows SO much and is terrific telling even the humorous aspects of history. The Wo Hing would not even be functional without him as much of their funding has been redirected. Thanks to Dennis and go visit the Wo Hing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We live in Kihei and don’t get to Lahaina often, but took our son and grandson age 14 to experience Lahaina as they recently relocated here from the mainland. Our grandson insisted upon going into the Wo Hing Museum, and we had the honor of Dennis Ryan personally taking us through the artifacts and educating us on their origin and meaning. It was fascinating! What a hidden treasure this place is. We didn’t have time to see the cook house or the Edison movie so we will be back soon! If he can hold the attention of a 14 year old boy for an hour, he’s pretty interesting! Thank you so much for the best day ever!

Found this museum to be quite interesting, with its local history from a Chinese perspective. Well worth a stop.

A bit of history about the old life style in Hawaii for Asian people. Interesting bits of info on the social life and the development of the island. A small number of exhibits to see. Great old black and white movie filmed by Thomas Edison which I watched twice!
