Overview

One of the top Hawaii attractions includes the Polynesian Cultural Center, which features a 42-acre facility on the North Shore of Oahu. Founded in 1963, the nonprofit Center was created so that the students of nearby Brigham Young University Hawaii could work their way through college by sharing their island heritage with visitors. The students come from an area that covers approximately 12 million square miles of the Pacific Ocean.

Many people told us that we had to go to the Cultural Center because they have the best Lua in the State. They were correct! I was amazed how they were able to get all of us in and out of the venues without it...More

We visited with a large group - lots of entertainment, however, no a lot of education about the cultures. Staff was super friendly.

PCC is a must do. Unlike any other experience. We had the ambassador package. Plenty to do here. Very rich in culture and educational. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

It was 90+ but we had great times. Buffet was ok but after dinner show was great. Traveling from island to island to experience the history and culture was good.

I'd give it at least an hour. Traffic can be heavy heading that direction.

What is the best way to visit the PCC with a 3 year old and a baby? Is the luau kid friendly or will everyone be annoyed? How late does everything go? Anyone visited with young kids? Was it too much walking/too tiring for them? Are there places to nurse a baby? Thanks!
