Located on the uphill side of the University of Hawaii Hilo campus and across from the administrative buildings for Mauna Kea’s Subaru and Gemini Telescopes, this center is an educational and cultural experience for students. Exhibits include global displays, depictions of the origins of the cosmos, and the explorations of ancient Polynesians and their voyaging canoes. The center successfully brings together the significance of the cosmos to ancient and modern cultures. Also on-site is a gift shop, restaurant, planetarium and a native Hawaiian garden. The center regularly schedules workshops on celestial navigation and way-finding, Hawaiian language and hula.
