We walked to the museum from Waikiki (about 45 mins) and spent a very pleasant couple of hours in the exhibit (during the hottest part of the day). Art lovers will appreciate the collections on show - whilst not the most famous of pieces (although some very famous artists are on show) they have gathered some important works that link... More

The museum is huge and covers art from Ancient Afghanistan to modern Japanese pornographic Manga. I ended up spending far more time than I meant to because the place was so big.

Escape from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and spend a few hours at this wonderful museum. A quiet, peaceful space filled with magnificent works of art from all over the world. There was a stunning exhibition on Shangri La (we truly regret that we'd not booked in advance in order to visit this extraordinary home) and Hawaiin culture was... More

This is a darling of a museum that is laid out very well and relishes in a broad collection of top-tier donations. $10 is a bargain. Don't miss the library which is well-resourced and a nice stop halfway through.

Honolulu Art Museum The Honolulu Art Museum was a pleasant surprise based on the lack of promotion prior to our trip to Honolulu. The museum has many highlights; the Pacific architecture is very pleasing and the collection includes one of Matisse’s last paintings, a nice set of Rockwell Kent etchings, and Japanese woodblocks (including some which were owned by James...

This was a nice visit for our family. With a small child, there was just enough to see without exhausting her. It took us about an hour to walk through. Neat Hawaii art.

We were offered a guide who showed us around and highlighted some of the excellent pieces. Only small but a outstanding museum with beautiful pieces of artwork. Loved the driftwood horse on the front lawn. If you go by waikiki trolley show your ticket....free.
