Luckily for us, our bags didn't make it on to our flight from Honolulu to Kona, so we had about a 45 minute wait at the airport. As we wandered around, we spotted the Onizuka Space Center. What a great surprise and wonderful experience. Ellison Onizuka was the first astronaut from Hawaii to be selected for the Space shuttle program and he passed away on the Challenger flight. The museum is a celebration of his life and career and is filled with inspirational and educational displays, artifacts, and stories. The docents were friendly and knowledgeable and were giving a great tour to a class of 5th graders when we were visiting. There is a unique gift shop as well where you can find NASA patches, books on space, and where they offer a free copy of an inspirational speech that Ellison gave to students in Hawaii.

Absolutely worth the trip, even if you aren't waiting for your bags!

PROS: Fun and uplifting experience
CONS:

Dedicated to the memory of Hawaii's first astronaut from the Big Island, Astronaut Ellison S. Onizuka Space Center is an educational facility where both children and adults learn about the manned space flight program. Numerous videos, exhibits, displays, and interactive activities encourage children and adults to want to learn about space. The Space Center is located at the Kona Airport. I would recommend this Space Center for school children.
