Our regular hours are Monday-Friday,
8:30am to 4:30pm
We are closed on Saturdays, Sundays & state holidays.
Admission is free.
Some exhibits and events are open on the weekend and holidays if a Special Use Permit is warranted. Such special exceptions are advertised and posted in advance. Visitors should be aware that at the end and beginning of each month, Wailoa Center is in transition and its galleries are closed to allow the crew to take down the old and install the new exhibits. Plan to visit Wailoa in the middle of the month to ensure that you get to see all of the artwork on display.
There is no elevator in the building, but a ramp provides access to both floors. Please contact us to make arrangements for parking and access assistance.
Education is a big part of Wailoa Center’s mission. Feel free to contact us about planning an excursion for your student group.
