The Kokee Museum is located in a beautiful meadow that will have you believing you are in a mountain setting. The museum offers a wealth of information about Kauai’s beautiful Kokee State Park, Waimea Canyon and the surrounding area. A number of interesting exhibits at the museum provide insight into the region’s history, geography, flora, native birds, hiking trails, hunting opportunities and why there are old telephone poles in the middle of the Alakai Swamp. For anyone yearning to learn more about this beautiful area, this is a stop you don’t want to miss.
The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the area and will be happy to answer your questions. Those with questions about the hiking trails and current conditions will find definitive answers here. For safety purposes the County of Kauai suggests that hikers list their names in the log book here at the Museum, thus being accounted for should any unforeseen situations arise.
If you arrive early enough and are looking for a bite to eat, head next door to the Koke’e Lodge, restaurants serving breakfast 7 days a week 9:00am – 11:00am.
