    The place was cool. I was there opening night and it looked even better. But people aren't taking care of the place. Gum on the ground, torn seats, broken exhibits. Should be more careful.

    The cultural connection is well presented in the exibits. Clear and to the point without duming down. The state of the art planetarium and show requires stayng awake in a comfortable dark room. Like all learning opportunities, one has to be willing to consider possibilities and be willing to stretch preconceived boundaries. A GREAT place to learn and experience for all ages. The restaurant is excellent too!.

    The planeterium movies are a cure for anyone's insomnia, i just couldn't keep my eyes open. Maybe something about leaning back and looking at stars. The exhibit hall has nice exhibits if you like the 'big bang theory.' I don't follow the big bang religion though. Felt like i wasted my money.

    'Imiloa is a parallel to the Island of Hawaii. At first it is beautiful and for some it may slowly become boring, unless you are willing to dig deeper into what the planetarium, exhibits, gardens and docents have to offer...then you discover the true value of your visit to 'Imiloa. $17 is a bargain, an annual membership even better...especially if you take your time to genuinely explore the excitement of technology, expansive skies, native plants and culture.
