Now open: Glaciarium, ice rink at the Stuhr Museum, a permanent winter feature | Local news from the Big Island
Skates are available for hire. The company that provided the surface delivered a set that included skates, a skate sharpener and the decorative fence that surrounds the rink.
The ice rink will have extended opening hours during school holidays. But with the end of the week just passed, it is now only open on weekends.
Groups of up to 30 people can use the ice rink by appointment. The Stuhr is home to schools, churches, businesses and other organizations. Group rates are available.
For members of the Stuhr Museum, the cost to skate at the rink is $ 8 per person. This figure includes the rental of skates.
Non-members pay $ 12 per person. Again, skate rental is included in the fee.
To skate, non-members must pay Stuhr’s daily admission during regular business hours 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. These admission fees give access to the entire museum campus as well as to the ice rink.
No daily admission fee is charged during evening skating hours (after 5 p.m.)
If you bring your own ice skates, you will receive a $ 2 coupon toward the purchase of concessions at the Glaciarium or Stuhr Bistro, assuming the skates pass inspection.
Wearing a helmet is not compulsory to skate at the Glaciarium. But skaters are welcome to bring their own helmets, including bicycle helmets, if they wish. Helmets are also available for hire for $ 2.
