We just visited the zoo and was able to see all the animals. The new zoned area for the elephants is great! They didn't have this up when we resided here years ago. Love the new playground area! Petting area seems the same although they had the aquarium in the center with the Koi fishes zoned off for some reason, maybe some ongoing renovations or improvements. Overall, we have become members and look forward to our visits to the zoo.

The Bishop Museum is Hawaii's largest and oldest Museum. It is located about halfway between Waikiki and the airport in the Kalihi area. For years they've had a free family Sunday once a month but recently I haven't been seeing it advertised as often. Fortunately I was able to take my friend who was visiting for China for a special free admission day. The largest exhibition hall is the Hawaii Hall that houses ancient Hawaii artifacts leading up to the discovery of Hawaii and early modernization.

What a neat experience! Getting to see these planes up closer was awe-inspiring. Now I want to be a pilot when I grow up, but I may never grow up so there's that. The staff is friendly as well. The little virtual game is a bit (extremely) outdated, but it was still fun to experience. It was humbling to learn the stories they had. If you haven't been here, make sure you drop by. It's well worth the visit.
