Hawaii Children's Discovery Center

We recently took DS2 to the Hawaii Children's Discovery Center.

He went there once before, but he was still an infant, so he didn't get to enjoy all of the displays.

Admission is $10 and children under 1 are free.  Kama`aina admission is $8.

There are many, many exhibits throughout the museum, including a Tot Spot for kids 5 years old and under.  The area has lots of toys, activity tables, and puzzles.

I think DS2 would've been happy staying in there all day!

The first bunch of exhibits are "Fantastic You," where kids learn all about the human body.

DS2 loved the food exhibit.

There are other exhibits referencing different parts of the body, how different parts of the body work, etc.
The Your Town exhibits include a mini neighborhood in which kids can pretend to work in a bank, go grocery shopping, work as mechanics, drive a bus, etc.

There's also a really cool room with lots and lots of books and neat places to read them (in a castle, in a big tree trunk, in a HUGE chair).
The second floor is themed Hawaiian Rainbows.  The exhibits here focus on Hawaii's past and present (plantation days, tourism, etc.).

Here is DS2 on an airplane exhibit.

The top level exhibits are themed Your Rainbow World.

Different cultures are represented throughout the exhibits, and you can take a peek into what life would be like in Japan, Korea, and many other countries.

DS2 loved the Hawaii Children's Discovery Center.  He could've stayed there all day.

I know we'll be back again, especially once DS3 is able to walk around and enjoy the exhibits himself!

Note: Strollers are not allowed.
