The mission of the Kaua`i Museum is to inspire and promote in the community an appreciation and respect for the indigenous and immigrant people of Kaua`i and Ni`ihau and their cultural heritages by 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; offering access to archives and artifacts for research; and providing an opportunity for artist to exhibit their creations which may be the artifacts of tomorrow.
