I always seek the museums when I travel; this one is not far from the 'Lolani Palace, so you can do both in a day downtown Honolulu. If you plan to eat lunch at the museum, put your name on a list early. Incredible galleries of Asian art; porcelain, furniture, scrolls, scrimshaw, etc. A surprisingly good modern art section. A...

Great museum for art! I always make it a point to come here once every 2 months to just check the new exhibits.

A really interesting art museum exhibiting local and Asian art. The design of the museum is totally realxing and rather unique with an inner courtyard and plenty of fresh air.

Lovely, small, but very interesting museum especially if you like Asian Art. Located in downtown Honolulu, they also have a very nice cafe and the the staff couldn't be more helpful.

As an art lover I found myself immersed in each and every room. Sadly time did not allow a return visit but I have since noted that the two major art houses/museums have become one. How wonderful!

Wow, what a building, setting and collection! I was blown away with the fabulous informality of the place and the grand masters paintings which we were able to view up close and unhurried. Next time we will book the trip to Shangra La to visit Joan Duke's place. You pay $25 for this and get admission too.

I came here as the first stop on the 9am Red Trolley tour but had badly planned my day without realising the Museum doesn't open until 10am. This meant I only had around 20-30 minutes left for this stop so I didn't pay to go inside for such a short time. As I understand it those with 4 or 7... More

The museum is in many rooms and multiple floors. The doors are narrow and hard to navigate with an electric wheelchair. ADA entrance is in the rear and you have to be escorted to the front to get ticket.

This place is amazing to come on the free days - the third sunday of every month - and enjoy it with family or friends. They always have fun exhibits in the main courtyard, and smaller, quieter ones in the small sections between exhibits. I've been here multiple times with friends and family and still enjoy every trip so its... More

Loved the museum itself before we even viewed artworks. It is very spacious, with beautiful courtyards. Especially loved the impressionists - Monet, Gaugin and Van Gogh - an unexpected surprise!
