Everything about this place is beautiful. Here is a picture of their vents! All galleries surround courtyards with fountains. And we had a marvelous lunch at the cafe.

A very nice collection of Asian and Polynesian art. They had a spectacular exhibit of Kimonos. A great way to spend a rainy day or if you need a break from the sun.

A great collection of European and Asian art, in a deceptively large museum. Collections from Phillipienes, Japan, China & Hawaiian cultures. Make sure you have 2-3 hours to tour.

This museum is not small about 15 collection rooms and courtyards. There are always exhibishion as well. But depending on your schedule, 1 hour or 2 hours will be walking through all collection rooms.
