We could only spend an hour, but we loved it. We didn't get to see the Hawaiian collection, but saw two fine special exhibitions -- Hiroshige prints donated by James Michener, and some ancient Chinese sculptures and artifacts. Nice gift shop with friendly clerks.

This museum is built around courtyards that give vistas of art objects. It has outstanding permanent collections, but always has intriguing new exhibits...like the current textile exhibit, "No Sweat." It has a fine gift shop with great books and art supplies for adults and children. It is a reflective oasis in a bustling city.

The Museum has many interesting pieces of art, a beautiful calming court yard, a super nice courtyard restaurant and a museum shop for souvenirs, good quality stuff, but on the expensive side.

Actually a very nice collection of art by local artists, and a nice range of media and styles from Hawaii and beyond. Nice information about the artists. We spent a nice hour or two here between all the touristy and pricey other activities everyone else was engaged in

A wonderful and claiming atmosphere filled with history. The exhibits are of a high caliber and the cafe is in a great setting. Wander through all the lovely courtyards.

This urban museum is not exactly world class, but certainly worth a visit, particularly if one is interested in Asian art and antiquities. If you visit, consider lunch in the Cafe (very good).

This was a beautiful afternoon for the family. The museum was a bit for the older kids (elementary) not so much for toddlers. We spent a nice afternoon walking through and talking about art.

Make sure you allow time to enjoy the art and other collections at this museum. Lunch is a must. There are pretty gardens and quiet places to just sit and relax ... don't hurry through and make time to mooch through the visitors shop. Must mention the volunteers and staff were very helpful and obviously love being there to help... More
