* Working in active cooperation with the indigenous and immigrant peoples to help sustain their respective cultures in the contemporary world;
* Developing and preserving outstanding collections which reflect the heritage and artistic achievements of the indigenous and immigrant peoples;
* Creating appropriate exhibits, publications, and educational programs which serve the indigenous and immigrant peoples and the general public;

About us:
The Kaua'i Museum is a privately owned, non-profit museum, opened in 1960, through the efforts of our founders, who had a community focused vision. For 43 years the Kaua'i Museum has been a bulwark of strength to the community in the areas of culture, art and the humanities. It lends its support to individuals and to organizations on the local, state and county levels, whenever a call is heard and it is within our means to help.
