I loved the different exhibits and the museum was bigger than I was expecting. We took the Red line Trolley to get there. It was perfect!

Almost no one goes to Hawaii thinking they'd like to go to an art museum, but I urge you to tear yourself away from the beach for an afternoon and check out this museum. It's got large collections of Chinese, Japanese and Buddhist art in addition to smaller, but very interesting collections from various other regions of the world that... More

Since I am an artist, art lover, and history buff, this museum trip was an excellent excursion. The exhibits included something new and something old, local art and historic art of Honolulu. The exhibits are always changing, so I check online to see what is happening before I head to Oahu on an annual excursion. I like to walk to... More

The selection of art here at the Honolulu Museum of art is impressive and the gallery is has an original layout. We did I the Doris Duke tour which I can highly recommend.

One of many informative locations to learn about Hawaiian culture; interesting, informative, and a great starting point for learning about the diverse island populations of the Hawaiian islands.

Fabulous well planned and articulated museum... we did this as an entrée to The Doris Duke House Shangri La and enjoyed this as much as we did the house... well worth it and easily accessible by local bus service to and from Waikiki

I enjoy my visits. We all need art in its many forms. I love the opening receptions, a perk at certain membership level. The special movies with food is also fun.
