In the uplands of Honolulu, Mānoa Heritage Center invites you to step back in time and explore our living connections to Hawai‘i’s past.
For hundreds of years, Kūkaʻōʻō Heiau has guarded Mānoa Valley from its prominent position with views of the Koʻolau Range to Waikīkī’s shoreline.
Built in 1911, Kūaliʻi remains the private Cooke family residence with plans underway for it to become an historic house museum one day.
Five beautiful gardens graciously adorn the master campus with endangered-endemic Native Hawaiian species to the modern-introduced plumeria.
The new Hale extends Mānoa Heritage Center’s campus with educational, structural and technological features in beautifully designed spaces.
