The Lānaʻi Culture & Heritage Center (Lānaʻi CHC) is open for regular museum hours on Monday-Friday from 1-3 pm. Entry to the museum during these hours is free of charge.
Holidays are observed and occasionally, unexpected closures occur. Lānaʻi CHC will post notices on its front door during these closures. Hours are also subject to change. The most up-to-date information will be posted on the Lānaʻi CHC website.
Lānaʻi CHC occasionally offers opportunities for private visits to the museum on weekdays. Two weeks advance notice is preferred to request a private visit. While Lānaʻi CHC will do its best to accommodate requests, there are no guarantees that all requests can be accepted due to extremely limited staff capacity.
