The Theme of the Children's Discovery Center is YOU!!!

Using state-of-the-art technology, the Center provides a "window to the world" and the opportunity for children to explore and discover things about themselves and the world through play. The Discovery Center has four major galleries, each filled with hands-on, interactive exhibits.

Tot Spot

This is a special area for our littlest guests. Those 5-years and younger can enjoy a stimulating and sensory filled environment.


Fantastic You!

Take an "inside look" at the wonders of the human body. Learn how the different parts of your body work together to create Fantastic You!


Your Town

Be a grown-up for a day and learn how a community functions. Have you ever wanted to be a fireman, a banker, a mechanic, or simply star in your own theater production? Your Town is a place where you can be anything you want to be!


Hawaiian Rainbows

Learn about what makes living in Hawaii so special. From the plantation days to modern Hawaii, there is a lot to learn and discover.


Your Rainbow World

Explore a rainbow of cultures, countries and celebrations from beyond our island shores. Take a trip to far away places and experience how life is similar and different in other parts of the world.

House Rules

For your utmost safety and enjoyment, please observe the following:

1. Play together! Our exhibits have been specially designed to be experienced and enjoyed by adults and children playing together.

2. Be Safe! Parents and guardians are responsible for their children. The Center can get very busy at times and children should never be left unattended.

3. Touch everything...gently! We encourage active exploration and touching, and with tender loving care, the exhibits will continue to provide enjoyment to you each time you visit.

4. Please remember: No food, drink, or gum chewing in the Center. Strollers must be parked at the entrance to the exhibit galleries. Turn off cellular phones in the exhibit areas.

5. Have fun!


We appreciate your help and consideration. With your cooperation, our Center will continue to be a wonderful educational resource for all for many years to come.
