Maui: Alexander & Baldwin (Day 7)

Tuesday morning we had planned on taking a snorkel trip with the Pacific Whale Foundation to Molokini and the Turtle arches, but they were fully booked so we moved that to Wednesday morning. Instead, we decided to visit the Alexander and Baldwin Sugar Museum. A small museum, detailing the history of sugar production on the island and showing living conditions as well as the tools of the trade and the history of the Alexander and Baldwin company. It is a small museum, but worth a visit if you have a couple of hours and any interest in the island’s main crop; in 2001 the single sugar mill opposite the museum produced 5% of the US’ cane sugar, and 7% of Maui’s electricity.
