Great for kids and adults, this center offers enough visual and interactive info to educate you on the active volcano, surrounding eco system, as well as local history and Hawaiian legends.
MaunaKea acces road is good and was a pleasure to meet, at Visitor Center, students and their professor, with instrument to welcome stars, planets and galaxies - I love the Smokey one!

However, all children are definitely welcome with parents to view the Center dedicated to the preservation of these beautiful majestic mammals.
The visitor center outside deck has a stationary binocular that can be used to look for whales, turtles or people watch.
This beautiful center is roofed but open air, with coconut palms towering 3 stories in the lobby, lush landscaping in the center of the 2nd and 3rd floors, and a full garden on the roof.
The convention center is huge, impressive, spacious with great facilities.
