The Exhibits at ‘Imiloa

‘Imiloa's exhibits are divided into two major areas: "Origins" and "Explorations." Within each area you will learn about Hawaiian and scientific beliefs, theories and practices related to Maunakea, the stars, and the world around us.



The Origins exploration center presents the birth of the cosmos and the beginnings of life on Earth. 



Hawaiian voyaging canoes are the vehicles for some of the greatest achievements of human exploration. 

Throughout the day, there may also be live presentations on a range of topics. These programs are produced by University of Hawai‘i at Hilo student interns and some high school junior interns.
