  • It would have been nice to see more Hawaiian art considering we were in Hawaii. The staff were a little 'dry' and could of smiled a little more considering it's a tourist attraction.  more »

  • I really enjoyed wondering around the museum. There is so much to see! The parking close by is metered with a 2 hour max. In 2 hours I only made it about halfway through the whole museum. So if you really like to appreciate art then be prepared to go move your car after 2 hours. There is a nice gift shop and a cafe that appeared to have a nice food selection- definitely smelled good!
  • Multiple buildings. Large inside despite appearance. A wide range of works and even famous artists (Monet) in the middle of Pacific Ocean. Layout can be confusing, but plenty of air conditional inside galleries. Free bag check. No flash photography or videography.
  • From the outside, this looks like a modest museum, but it holds an impressive permanent collection, especially when it comes to Asian and Pacific art. The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions of multimedia, contemporary art. I plan to return when I'm next in Honolulu.
  • I love this museum with all my heart. The exhibits don't change as often as I'd like, but I still come here at least three times a year. This is my happy place, and I love to share it with my friends that are visiting. I do find it strange that there isn't a larger collection dedicated to representing the art of Hawai‘i, which is something I urge the Museum to change soon.
  • Great museum with great guides! Can be a little busy. Has a great cafe inside which the prices are quite reasonable. Extremely recommended.
