We loved the multiple rooms, quality of the displays and the variety of art and materials displayed. The museum is sparing in emphasizing an area, island or style. The collection is large and varied. Worth a visit.

This is a gem of a museum. Though it may be small in comparison to a lot of other state capitals' art institutions, it has a multitude of incredible and most impressive collections. There is a cafe and gift shop, both very nice.

I did not expect to find such a gem in downtown Honolulu. It is a bit out of the way from Waikiki but can be easily reached by cab or rental car. Spend a couple of hours there. Learning some of the local character and culture is fascinating.

It may seem odd to interrupt sea and surf for a cultural excursion but you won't regret it. This beautiful museum has it all. Its Asian collection is outstanding as are its contemporary offerings. Its European and American paintings are all excellent selections. The museum itself is built around attractive courtyards. My one regret is not signing up in time... More

This is one of my favorite places to visit when I am in Honolulu. Permanent and temporary exhibits always have something of interest. Plus the art school (associated) across the street also has changing exhibits. We usually dine at the museum cafe while making a day of it. We did not tour the Doris Duke house on this trip but...

Every time I"m in Honolulu, I go to the restaurant here for lunch. It's terrific for elegant (and large) salads, limited but great wine selection, and desserts to die for. Then there's the gorgeous stucco building with courtyards a elegant sculptures. And the Asian art collection is WOW. Nice gift shop with notecards, high-end Hawaiian craft, and art books.

We visited the museum only to do the Doris Duke Islamic Art Tour , the tour was the highlight of our holiday but the museum was such a bonus! We can't wait to go back!

So much beauty! Honolulu is very luck to have this gem, filled with treasures from around the world. Much of the exhibits change but we found sketches by Goya, paintings by Picasso, folk art from around the Pacific and so much more. Just allow enough time to see it all!
