The Kokeʻe Natural History Museum showcases detailed topographical maps of the area and local historical photographs. They also have diagrams, botanical sketches of native plants and taxidermic representations of some native and invasive wildlife found in Kokeʻe. The museum also has a tribute to the late photographer and educator David Boynton, who died in 2007 when he was hiking along a cliff trail to one of his most cherished spots on the Na Pali coastline. Boynton was also a guidebook contributor for Lonely Planet.

The museum has a brochure for the short nature trail out back. It offers interpretive information corresponding to the trail’s numbered plants and trees, including many native species. During summer weekends, trained volunteers lead Wonder Walks (June to September, nominal donation), guided hikes on various trails at Waimea Canyon and Kokeʻe State Parks.
