COVID-19 Health and Safety Update
Mānoa Heritage Center is closed to the public for the foreseeable future. If you made a reservation for a tour or workshop, one of our staff will be contacting you directly regarding a refund. Our priority is to protect the health and safety of our staff and visitors, especially keiki and kūpuna, and support local, national and international efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. While there are no suspected or confirmed cases connected to MHC, we believe that this decision is in the best interest of public health. We look forward to announcing when we’ll be welcoming our visitors back to Mānoa Heritage Center.
During these precarious times, we want to leave you with this quote shared by our friends at the Polynesian Voyaging Society: “We are each made for goodness, love and compassion. Our lives are transformed as much as the world is when we live with these truths.” – Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu
