  • I visited the centre with a group of older school students. The display/ exhibition part is quite nice with some hands on displays, the highlight of which was a globe which you can project time lapse ...  read more »
  • My visit included a projection of 2D movie, a short preview of how to look will be the evening sky and visiting exhibitions, and educational path for children. As for me, this place has a huge untapped potential.

  • Got to learn more about how the early Polynesians used the stars to navigate in the sea and got some history about Hawaii's volcanoes. Its very educational as well 
  • The "Skies Above Hawaii" planetarium show is excellent!! Our host asked people what they were interested in seeing and then customized the show on the fly to include audience interests. Modern planetarium setup with high resolution and 3D capabilities. Exhibits are ok, really geared more towards children than adults for the most part.
  • Go to their planetarium show! It's a leisure walk through the museum, which features astronomy and Hawaiiana. Walk outdoors through their garden. Facilities are clean.
  • It's a pretty cool museum. It has a very cute planetarium. You can learn a lot about the ancient sailing ways of the Polynesians. That is also mixed in with modern technology for star gazing
  • Good buffet at lunch time.
  • Great place to take your kids, and eat
