The Honolulu Museum of Art is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and teaching all about the visual arts which are specifically relevant to Hawaiʻi’s ethnically diverse community.
The art that you will experience at the impressive Honolulu Museum not only offers an insight into the minds of the local artists, but also takes you back through the history of Hawaii and its cultures.
In addition to the local artists, the museum collection offers an exploration into various cultures of the world, and their fascinating history too - sometimes going back thousands of years!
The Honolulu Museum of Art has about 50,000 objects in the impressive collection, representing all major cultures from ancient times right through to today.
Throughout the museum's permanent collections there are Japanese Woodblock Prints on display, as well as European antiquities and art from as early as the 17the century.
The Honolulu Museum of Art also features changing exhibitions, highlighting specific artists or techniques, so you can always go back and see something new with your next visit if you plan accordingly!
It's worth noting that your admission gets you into the additional Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House location if you visit on the same day.
