The museum offers a comprehensive look at the sugar industry through photos, artifacts, working models and interactive displays.

The Mill Room inside the Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum

The Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum encompasses six exhibit rooms that serve to illustrate the various factors that affect the sugar industry: the Geography Room focuses on weather patterns, the Water Room explaining how water was brought to the area, the Human Resources room is all about the pioneers who established Maui's modern sugar industry, the Plantation Room with photos and relics, the Field Work Room featuring tools and work outfits and the Mill Room with interactive displays including a scale-model of a cane-crushing machine. 

The outdoor exhibits include a Cleveland Model J36 trench digger, an outdoor Portuguese oven built in the 1920s, vintage Caterpillar tractors, and the historic steam locomotive known as the "Claus Spreckels." The Claus was in the service of Kahului Railroad for 47 years, from 1882 to 1929, hauling sugar, other cargo and passengers.

The museum is located next to Hawaii's Commericial & Sugar Company, Hawaii's last working sugar factory until it closed in December 2016.
