Owner description: One of the top Hawaii attractions includes the Polynesian Cultural Center, which features a 42-acre facility on the North Shore of Oahu. Founded in 1963, the nonprofit Center was created so that the students of nearby Brigham Young University Hawaii could work their way through college by sharing their island heritage with visitors. The students come from an area that covers approximately 12 million square miles of the Pacific Ocean.

“Polynesian Center and Half Day Circle Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We did the Circle Tour and ended with a half day at the Polynesian Cultural Center. Uncle Henry was our tour guide for the entire day and he was EXCELLENT! He made the tour of the island interesting and shared many stories. He even made an unexpected stop so we could see the sea turtles at the North Shore. Once at the Polynesian Center we had not signed up for a "guided" tour. But since he was available he took our group on our own guided tour. He knew where to go and when and we saw all the interesting things we would not see in the end of shoe performance. It was an excellent tour and I would highly recommend!! Uncle Henry made the trip great!!!

“Love, love, love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

PCC is the most entertaining & learning experience I will ever be a part of. People love & take pride in their culture and want to share it. Restaurant food there is "ONOLICIOUS" so plan on spending an entire day & evening there. This is a must see!

“Continue on the path that you are on.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I was very impress with how clean and friendly the cast was. I am looking forward to many more years of association with the PCC. Thank you for a super experience both in entertainment and hospitality food was delicious also. Again thanks for the memories. I was a dancer and musician at the Samoan section during the grand opening in October of 1963 at the age of 14 we were the youngest section because we were all high school students from Kahuku high school. I work there at the PCC from oct 1963 to July of 1964.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The entire experience was breath taking. The people were so warm and shared their cultures in such an open way. There is so much talent and I haven't seen such a professional and moving show as the night show in years. The food was delicious and the entire atmosphere was beautiful. Best place in Hawaii, it didn't feel like a tourist attraction, it felt authentic to the islands.
