The Honolulu Zoo is the only zoo within a radius of 2,392 miles. It is also the only zoo in the United States that originated in a King’s grant of royal lands to the people.

Hawaii Children's Discovery Center
The Children's Discovery Center, "Hawaii's Rainbow Connection to the world," is a legacy of love for the children and families of Hawaii. What was once a dream has indeed become a wonderful reality. We have an opportunity to keep that dream alive for all of Hawaii's keiki o ka aina (children of the land). We'd like to share that opportunity with you. Hope you can find the time to come and play!
