Kid-Friendly Museum Programs in the Hawaiian Islands

Posted on August 12, 2013

A family vacation to the Hawaiian Islands can involve more than just sun, sand, and surf. Families can expand their Hawaii experience with a visit to one of the multitude of museums to learn more about the islands’ unique culture and history in a fun and engaging way. Turn young travelers into modern-day explorers at these kid-friendly museums:

Kokee Natural History Museum (Kauai) – Explore the natural and cultural history of Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Parks through interpretive exhibits. Then step outside into the real classroom where the wildlife from the exhibits come to life, including the Nene, Hawaii’s state bird, which is most often spotted from May through September. Little scientists are encouraged to help State Wildlife Biologists count the Nene goose at Kokee State Park. Kokee.org

Bishop Museum (Oahu) – At the 16,500 square foot Science Adventure Center, young visitors can explore various areas of science as it relates to the Hawaiian Islands including volcanology, oceanography and biodiversity. Twice a day, science educators replicate 2,000-degree lava. BishopMuseum.org

Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum (Maui) – One of the few remaining structures that were once part of the thriving plantation town of Puunene. Guests will get an inside look on the history of sugar and plantation life on Maui. SugarMuseum.com

Imiloa Astronomy Center (Hawaii Island) – Connect with the earth, sea, and sky just as the native Hawaiians did when they navigated throughout the Pacific utilizing the natural environment as a guide. Interactive exhibits will explain the Hawaiian theories and beliefs about the universe with a focus on Maunakea, a volcano sacred to both the native people and modern day scientists.
