Fascinating. There is an area for every culture that make Hawaii what it is today. Well worth a visit. We spent all day there.
Shh, you have to be quiet. If you have young children, keep them under your watch. No picture taking. Most enjoyable for elementary aged children and up. There is a seperate room where you can watch a short video about Hawaii. And then, you tour the various arts of painting, sculpture, hand engraved items and jewelry of various cultures.

This museum has a little bit of almost everything, from ancient Egypt to Picasso and Roger Bacon. I especially enjoyed the Indonesian collection with its spooky atmosphere. The Khmer statue of the Prajnaparamita with its mysterious smile is worth a longer contemplation. The building itself, a series of interconnecting patios in the Spanish style, is quite beautiful.

Great art housed in a fabulous building that is filled with delightful courtyards with koi ponds and fountains. You will be amazed at the quality of the encyclopedic collection at this gem of a museum. Great gift shop and cafe, too. Don't miss this on your trip to Honolulu.
This is a lovely museum and has a beautiful café for a light lunch. The museum is divided into sections with small collections of art in each gallery. Each of the sections has a lovely central courtyard with places to sit, relax and take in the beauty. The gift shop is also a treat and has a lovely collection of... More
I took my son there at age 3 and I don't think it was the best entertainment for him, although he did enjoy some things. They had some areas closed off too, and that was unexpected and disappointing. But otherwise, we had a great time, and the staff is super friendly! I love the gardens and ancient art and tools,... More
This museum gives a good overview of various artists of the islands and the culture of the people. It also provides a way to see the Doris Duke Museum which must have the largest Islamic art collection outside the Middle East. It's worth the additional fee.
This is a wonderful museum with just enough items to view, especially Asian art. It was interesting to see a few examples of European art in such a far away museum. The cafe served a delicious lunch, but the gift shop was disappointing in its offerings.
This was a high point. We were most impressed by the student art. It was of such caliber that I had to keep reminding myself that these were 8th to 12th graders!
We had a rainy Sunday during our travel to Oahu that we needed to find indoor activities to entertain us. One of our stops was the art museum and we loved it. The museum is located in Honolulu not far from Waikiki. It wasn't crowded and parking was on the curb in front of the museum. The admission fee is... More
