  • There are some good exhibits and staff have information to share. The problem is that there is little signage so that it is not really clear what you are looking, which direction to go, etc.

  • We visited a couple years ago, but understand it's still very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits, the cultural sensitive throughout, and the excellent films.

  • 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
