AAA Editor Notes

Polynesian Cultural Center is on SR 83 next to Brigham Young University. The 42-acre center preserves and shares the heritage of the South Pacific region: Hawai‘i, Samoa, Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji and Aotearoa (New Zealand). While visiting each village, you'll interact with native people of these island cultures and enjoy presentations, exhibits and hands-on Go Native! activities. More than 100 natives perform in the evening “Ha: Breath of Life” show. “Hawaiian Journey” is a 15-minute cinematic experience featuring 4-D special effects. An exhibition area devoted to Rapa Nui (Easter Island) is another highlight. General admission includes walking and canoe tours of the facility; the Lā‘ie tram tour and Mission Settlement; Go Native! activities; the Rainbows of Paradise canoe pageant; and “Hawaiian Journey.” Other packages include enhanced tours, special lei greetings, a variety of dining options and the “Ha: Breath of Life” show.
