Walking Tour of Kaluanui
Guided Tour: Mondays & Wednesdays at 10:00 am, approximately 1 hour
Self Guided Tour: Open Daily / 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
We welcome you to discover Kaluanui on this walking tour featuring more than seventy specimens of plants and trees. About an hour in duration, this beautiful tour of the Kaluanui Estate celebrates Maui’s unique landscape and history.
Built by Harry & Ethel Baldwin as a family home in 1917, Kaluanui now provides an inspiring and creative space for Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center—a non-profit visual arts organization founded in 1934.
As you explore the Kaluanui Estate, you will see two of Maui’s largest Norfolk Island Pines, many endemic and indigenous plants, the remains of one of Maui’s earliest sugar mills, and you'll also learn a bit about the architectural features of a nearly 100-year-old historical home. Along the way, you will also have the opportunity to see a live glassblowing demonstration (available on Mondays from 10am-1pm), peek inside the Hui's professional art studios, and shop a beautiful selection of Maui made gifts.
Visit Kaluanui today to experience a living piece of Maui’s history!
