About Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii
‘Imiloa is a place of lifelong learning where the power of Hawai‘i’s cultural traditions, its legacy of exploration, and the wonders of astronomy come together to provide inspiration and hope for generations.
Full Description
The Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii is located on the Big Island's east side in the city of Hilo. The center opened in 2006 with the goal of being a place of gathering, inspiration, and connection in the astronomy community. Inside the 12,000 square foot gallery you'll find over 100 exhibits on the subject of astronomy.

The experience here ranges from the early days of how the Polynesian explorers navigated via the stars to the modern day world of The Big Islands Telescopes. There's something here for astronomy fans of all ages.

We went here yesterday for something to do. We had intentions of going to a 1:00 pm show on the stars over Hawaii however we got there 10 minutes too late and they won't open the doors once the show starts. So we toured the rest of it. They had little movies and exhibits that were on displayed that was quite interesting. Then we ate at the restaurant that was there. Awesome food.

Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii is a great place to take the entire family. The planetarium show is amazing and very educational. The exhibits are very hands on and perfect for children. All of the exhibits and shows teach you about science and astronomy in a way that makes it very easy to learn.
