"A Look At Seven Polynesian Cultures" Polynesian Cultural Center Tip by VeronicaG

Polynesian Cultural Center, Oahu: 19 reviews and 37 photos


The Polynesian Culture Center has created seven South Pacific villages in which you might witness a war dance, see training in fireknife practices, sample poi or coconut bread and even throw a Tongan spear or two.

Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Tonga, Tahiti, Marquesas, Fiji, New Zealand (Aotearoa) and Samoa plus Hawaii, comprise the villages (pics #2-3). Your ticket will allow your return for up to three days from your initial visit. Although we didn't plan to see the Imax film presentation, it's part of the ticket package, as well.

For the adventurous, you can attend an authentic Hawaiian Luau--we chose another dining plan because we were traveling with our grandson who enjoys very basic foods. If you chose this route, you'll receive a lovely lei which will scent your steps everywhere you wander for the rest of the evening.

Gates open at 12:00 noon. Several gift shops carrying souvenirs to finer items are available at the center. The Polynesian Culture Center is a venture of Brigham Young University. Many of the students work here in order to attend the university.
