The Hana Cultural Center and Museum is dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional culture. It is located on the grounds of the town courthouse and jail, which was built in 1871 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. The courthouse is significant in that it might be the oldest surviving single-wall structure in Hawaii. The museum houses numerous ancient and more recent artifacts such as stone implements, poi boards, fish nets, quilts and hooks. Also on the property is the Kauhale Village, a replica of a pre-contact chief compound.
