Headquarters Visitor Center to Re-open After 5 Month ClosureFebruary 18, 2016, 5:30 AM HST · Updated February 17, 4:42 PM 0 Comments
The Haleakalā National Park Headquarters Visitor Center, located at the 7,000 foot elevation, will re-open on Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016, following structural repairs. Hours are from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. daily. Back country permits will be available inside this building from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
The Headquarters Visitor Center closed in late September 2015 for roof replacement, seismic and structural repairs, and entrance renovations. The building was originally scheduled for a two-month closure; however, during the renovations, a storm blew off the temporary roof and caused extensive flooding inside the building, resulting in numerous additional repairs.
“We appreciate the patience of our visitors, partners, and the local community as these extensive repairs and renovations were done. We look forward to re-opening the building,” said superintendent Natalie Gates.
