The visitor center is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm every day of the week. Stop by the center to receive an orientation to the park, ask some questions or to browse the selection of Hawaiian books, videos, and unique hand made craft items available for sale.
For children from 7 to 12 years old, Junior Ranger programs are available. Ask a park ranger at the visitor center for a copy of the junior ranger activity booklet, follow the instructions and complete the activity booklet. Present the completed booklet to a ranger and earn a junior ranger badge.
Did You Know?
Did you know that traditional Hawaiian masonry is both dry-set and non-dressed? This means that it uses no mortar to bind stones together and that the stones are not shaped. Stones are meticulously fitted and locked into place using the natural porous nature of the lava rock.
