An absolute must!

This center was the highlight of our Oahu trip. We loved it so much that we went to visit it 2 days in a row (also, it's difficult to see everything in one day unless you arrive early). Don't miss the 14:20 canoe ride show and plan ahead because every village has presentations at different times.
