Polynesian cultural center

Polynesian Cultural Center

The Polynesian Cultural Center, located on Oahu's north shore, brings together the history and cultures of Hawaii, Fiji, New Zealand, Marquesas, Samoa, Tahiti and Tonga in authentic recreated villages covering over 42-acres. Learn first-hand how Pacific islanders build houses with no nails, expertly spear fish, climb 50-foot trees for coconuts, pound bark into cloth, carve fishhooks, weave mats and cook with "hot rocks" in an imu (underground oven). Don't miss the ancient war dances, traditional wedding ceremonies and the spectacular luau show with a cast of over 100 Polynesian dancers.
