FEATURES
The Polynesian exhibit will represent several island groups in the South Pacific. The exhibit area will include a lagoon in which Polynseian divers will demonstrate pearl diving and pearl culturing. The lagoon will be surrounded by structures typical of the South Pacific and will include a "long house", in which will be a small bar and restaurant serving Polynesian foods. Polynesian dancers and musicians will entertain the visitors and a troop of Samoan dancers will give special performances.
