A Message From
CHAIR, BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Out the "ashes" of an old city incinerator was born a dream . . . literally. To say that the story of the Hawaii Children's Discovery Center is a unique one would be an understatement.
Formerly known as the Hawaii Children's Museum, housed in the Dole Pineapple Cannery in Iwilei, the storefront facility quickly outgrew its audience of families with young children and throngs of schoolchildren who lined up at the door to visit the 5,000 square-foot museum. The museum started and staffed initially by volunteers, needed to find a permanent home.
