The Polynesian Cultural Center is one of the most visited destinations in Hawaii! Our beautiful 42 acre park, which sits along the northeast edge of Oahu, features six distinct Polynesian villages, Hawaii, Aotearoa, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga and Samoa. We offer numerous dining options including daily luaus which provides a delicious island themed buffet and lively entertainment. Our award winning evening show, Ha: Breath of Life features over 100 Polynesian performers, presenting a stirring tale of love, adventure, life and death and featuring championship level fireknife dancers and jaw dropping special effects. We also provide a variety of shops and kiosks offering everything from aloha inspired clothing to quality ukuleles, and island souvenirs to fine jewelry.

Great fun and learning experience. The Luau (extra) is definitely worth it and the show that accompanies it is a ton of fun.

We finished the whole park in 2 hours. There were a lot of little performances, but not enough to spend the entire day. It was incredible, fun and educating though. Prepare for some audience participation though!

I always carry water and was not asked to discard it. There was certainly things available to purchase. I don't believe they checked bags so you might be able to carry something small for your children.
