Alexander and Baldwin Sugar Museum

Field review by the editors.

Pu'unene, Maui, Hawaii

Everything you never knew about the Hawaiian sugar cane industry -- which was Hawaii's top industry for over 150 years -- directly across the road from the largest working sugar factory in Hawaii. Learn about weather, water, plantation worker camps. Highlights including a working scale model of a cane-crushing machine (augmented with lighting and sound effects; it took 30 years to build) and a giant spider-like cane claw scoop that you can pose under for "Aggh, I'm a doomed stalk of sugar cane!" novelty snapshots.
