Hawaii Children's Discovery Center
Children are encouraged to learn about a diverse range of subjects at this busy, colorful facility. It offers a number of fanciful interactive displays and learning toys. Every subject from physiology to sociology is explored. Tour the 'Global Village' or play a game of volleyball...with a robot! The 37,000 square foot space offers several hours of entertainment for kids and parents. The center has been open since late 1998. It's geared toward children aged 3-13.
it was in the middle of no where and hard to find. the place was not as clean as it could be, there was stains on the floor. the toys and stuff were not that nicely kept, some were missing and some were really damaged. the workers did not really help me when i asked questions, they answered it with more questions. the price isn't that good, i would've rather took my child to the park or beach. the atmosphere is not brightly lit in some places nor was the air circulated well. my child got bored and we got lost finding the exit. i would not recommend this to other, i would say take your child to the park or beach, being free does not mean lesser quality. it was not worth my time at all or my money. i think the service of the people are really fake and it bugs me how my child even picked up on that.
I was so impressed by the size and fun activities for the children. My kids loved playing in the cultural houses. The place was very clean and the volunteers were so friendly. They even have a kids cafe to eat lunch.
The Directions on Map Quest were awful. Ohe street does not run perpendicular to 92/Ala Moana Blvd. The street you need to take a right/left on is the street indicated on the Discovery Center's telephone answering machine. Also, I can't believe the Center does not answer the phone!
I'm always looking for fun and affordable activities for my twin girls when we plan our annual summer vacation to Waikiki. I've wanted to visit the Discovery Center for years after reading about the center on this Yahoo Travel site a couple of years ago. Well, we finally made it, and wow, what an outstanding place for kids! From the moment we walked in my girls were completely engrossed in the wonderful activity stations. These were not mindless activities, but fun, stimulating and educational. I highly recommend this center for families with young children.
The Hawaii Children's Discovery Center was hard to find. There are no signs from Ala Mona Street. Basically look for the smoke stack building behind the Honda dealership (Ward cross street). New building next to park, free parking. No discount if you belong to other children's museums, but they're a non-profit and the exhibits are first class. My 2 year old son loved the bus and fire truck play areas. They have lots of costumes (fireman jacket, police jacket, judge robes, etc.) for kids to try on. 2 floors. Very clean and good variety of exhibits for kids.
