At the time there was a special exhibition from Doris Duke's collection of Islamic Art and it was excellent. They also have a couple of Monet's, Cezanne's etc. There is also a lovely courtyard to have a coffee and... More

We really enjoyed our visit here. The art on display is world class. They have a good selection of several types of art and at the time we went they had an exhibition showing photos and personal items from Doris Duke's Home Shangri La. Tours of Shangri La leave from the museum also.

If you enjoy art and want to experience some of the best on view in Hawaii, make a visit to the Honolulu Museum of Art. Nice gift shop and lovely outdoor restaurant. Perfect for lunch.

This small art museum has some nice works by artists you will know - O'Keefe, Gaugin, Rodin, Van Gogh... This was a nice respite from the beach on a pretty cloudy day.

This charming museum is just the right size, and the exhibits have wonderful lighting. There's plenty of ancient and modern art from Islamic, Buddhist, and Hindu countries, as well as 20th Century art from Hawaii. A lovely cafe, a courtyard, fountains...it's guaranteed to make you smile. Don't miss it!

I drug my husband to the art museum just to get out of the house and try something different. The museum has its own parking ($5) so that was a bonus. The museum staff/volunteers were very helpful and pointed us to the exhibits of most interest to us. I would have preferred more paintings in some of the exhibits (sculptures,... More

A peaceful, serene getaway from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. There's always a neat exhibit, very often from around the world. Center garden is lovely. Not to be missed.

Great pieces from great artist, great Asian pieces and the ambience allows you to stroll. Crowds are minimal and the collection changes so a visit every few months will be worth while.

I was expecting an art museum on par with smaller cities, but the museum actually houses a very impressive collection. I went for the Doris Duke Shangri-la exhibit. Please note that the beautiful garden you see if the ads for this exhibit are not at the museum. you can tour the actual house, but must make reservations weeks in advance.... More
