You would never know this beautiful museum is nestled so close to the H1. We have known about this museum since out first trip and finally was able to visit on our third trip. The main building looks like a castle and houses a three story exhibit ranging from a small scale heiau and rebuilt hale on the first floor to maritime exhibits on the second to a history of Hawaii on the third. There is a full-scale whale that hangs over you from the ceiling. A koa staircase greets you upon entering the building. When we were there, they had an exhibit for the South Pacific. The building next door was skipped as it housed the special feature of the month -- Legos, which was of no interested to us. However, we did go to the Science Center, which was not very science-y, much to our disappointment. We returned to the Planetarium, but did not stay for the show. The gift shop had enough trinkets to purchase (which we did). Overall, it was a very good visit -- well worth visiting!!
