HONOLULU — Four of Hawaii’s largest foundations have pledged a total of $2.3 million to Bishop Museum’s planned science learning center, the museum announced yesterday.

The pledges bring the amount raised to $16.3 million. Gov. Ben Cayetano hopes the $25.5 million phase one of the project will be built along the Kakaako waterfront.

The Harold Castle Foundation pledged $1.5 million; the Atherton Family Foundation $500,000; the McInerny Foundation $150,000; and the Samuel and Mary Castle Foundation $100,000, the museum said.

The science learning center is to include a high-tech planetarium IMAX theater, an interactive science exhibit hall, a science garden and an interactive video conference center.
