“Beautiful Art pieces”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

This museum houses alot of beautiful Asian artwork. If you want Polynesian or Hawaiian pieces then visit the Bishop Museum or contact Kamehameha Schools for other venues. The only sad thing about this place is the Homeless camps right across from the museum.

This was an interesting museum with a good gift shop. We came here to take the Shangri La tour - which was amazing. The museum itself was cool - similar to many other museums I have seen but they have a wonderful array of Hawaiian artefacts.

Something very interesting that I wanted to take part in but didn't get the chance was the event they have called ARTafterDARK. It's held on the last Friday of every month and it looked really cool. We didn't get a chance to go but saw people setting it up and the employer there really suggested that we attend. It looked like there were DJ's and really good food etc. So if you get a chance to go - please go for me!

It is worth the price $25, making a reservation, taking a roundtrip bus ride to the home - was Doris Duke's Honolulu residence. Besides, it is the only way you can see this fantastic place. You meet at the Honolulu Museum of Art to board the bus and return there. Admission to the museum is included and many of us ate lunch there and shopped in the museum store. It is a nice way to spend part of a day learning about this unusual house and the woman who owned it.

“Great little museum for Hawaii”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Recently saw the Ansel Adams and Georgia O'Keefe exhibit which focused on Hawaii. If you have never been, there is a nice Japan, China and India collection. They have special collections that rotate and every visit you'll see new things. A very pleasant way to spend an afternoon
