The museum is a treasure and well worth the time to visit. If you have a family, try to find out when the free 'ohana days sponsored by the Bank of Hawai'i are held. They have things for the keiki to do. The museum has many fine examples of art from around the world. My favorites being the Hawaiian and... More

If you are on Oahu, do yourself a favor and stop by the Honolulu Museum of Art. When you arrive, you can park in one of the museum's parking lots for $5, or you can park at one of the many meters on the side streets along the museum. (There is a two hour limit for most of them, and... More

This is a complex where every attention to detail is evident, from the design of the display rooms to the themed open courtyards, even the gallery seating was special. We enjoyed coffees at their little cafe though we didn't eat at their restaurant (booking ahead is advised. It was packed out at about 11.30, so obviously the place to be).... More

We decided to go to the Art Museum since it was included in our trolly tickets. The building is very interesting. It wasn't as small as I thought it was but if you have time check this place out.

I was riding the Waikiki Trolley one day on my way to the Botanical Garden and the bus stopped here. On a whim we jumped off and am I so glad we did! A nice museum with some very beautiful exhibits. The museum is small but with lots of interesting pieces. A docent who was extremely knowledgable led us through... More

I like the Honolulu Museum of Art because the displays are always uptodate and well put together. The asian and hawaiian art displays are phenomenal. I enjoy wandering the courtyards as well as having a delicious lunch at the cafe. It's a special place.

There is a lovely cafe for lunch as well it has an amazing collection of Asian art and artifacts. There is an amazing tour to Doris Dukes Shangri-La house that you must try to see. Also a great museum... More

This is one of the best museums in America! It is a wonderful way to get a worldview of art in one visit. James Michener left his incredible Japanese print collection to the Museum and some portion of it is always on display. Doris Duke's Islamic art is also part of the permanent collection and tickets for tours of her... More
