  • 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 »

  • Breathtaking. Worth admission to say the least. We had 90 mins before closing and just barely saw it all. This was a highlight of our trip to Oahu only beaten by our wedding and whale-watching. Van Gogh, Picasso, Monet, Warhol....DAMN. Should've sent a poet. Beautiful place, unforgettable artwork. I will never forget the feeling of being present with thousands of years in history. Bless this place. You can see how some paintings were accomplished by leaning with the light to see brush-strokes and added-dimension/clarity that is impossible to recapture with prints or photos. A must see!
  • Fantastic museum. A must see. The building is amazing. It represents the Hawaiian art and how diverse it is. The cafe restaurant serves amazing food and the service is top notch. Try to go the earliest you can cause it gets busy after 1. 👍
  • Art after dark. Was more like a night club but hey I ain't complaining... Nice art, and everyone dressed to impress. Art everywhere! Also found a Monet which was unexpectedly awesome ...
  • Was hoping for good enough, got FANTASTIC! Such a wonderful surprise to enjoy the gorgeous, though provoking, inspiring artwork from so many different countries and artists. Definitely worth the visit when here in Honolulu - and I've been to art museums all over the globe. Well done Honolulu!!
  • This was an excellent visit. Well laid out and walking you through a gradual history of artistic periods the Museum had some amazing works, including some by Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh and the like. There was also some more contemporary and local pieces and some from the wider pacific region.
