The Hawaiʻi Wildlife Discovery Center is a nonprofit, multi-media venue featuring a dynamic blend of art and science celebrating Hawaiʻi’s marine life and showcasing the fieldwork of Hawaiʻi Wildlife Fund. We have filled 5,000 sq ft. with over 30 stunning exhibits about Hawaiʻi’s undersea life, whaling era, cultural values, and conservation. Our many exhibits include an Immersion Room with a floor to ceiling film spanning 3 walls, a Kid’s Zone art & play area, marine debris art & exhibits, and 45 locally produced videos on an interactive kiosk. There is something here for everyone! More…

Visit us on the 3rd floor of Whalers Village in Lahaina, Maui, and discover what everyone is talking about!

“It was absolute TREAT! Anthony showed us around the entire museum and he was such a joy to talk to. The projector room is so special, it makes you feel like you are diving in the ocean! I learned so much about Hawaiʻi’s flora and fauna and beautiful culture. This museum is a dream and everyone should visit! It will teach you things that will make you appreciate the beautiful Hawaiian islands even more than before and will inspire you to help protect it!”

“This is a fantastic immersive experience. Take an hour to explore the huge space;
it’s loaded with educational exhibits and art. Proceeds support the Hawaiʻi Wildlife Fund.”

Mahalo HI Now and Maui Visitors & Convention Bureau for this video!

We have long needed a place that helps our visitors to better understand how to respect native wildlife, while simultaneously gaining a deeper appreciation for the islands. We depend on partnerships like the one we’re sharing with Whalers Village and the Whale Sanctuary to succeed in our conservation efforts,
and I couldn’t be more excited about this wonderful place we’ve created.
