Family Fun and Education at the Polynesian Cultural Center
We had the pleasure of spending a fun and educational family day at the Polynesian Cultural Center. This park is a large living museum type theme park that represents 7 major island nations along with some other smaller islands. The major island nations represented at the park all have authentically simulated villages where they host interactive activities, shows and demonstrations. In addition to all of that, they have a large luau and a spectacular evening show of Ha Breath of Life. Below is a photo gallery of our family’s visit to this wonderful park.

Around the park there is a photo opportunity almost every 50 feet. Here we are on a bridge overlooking one of the many waterfalls. | Photo by FamilyVacationHub
