The Bishop Museum was established 125 years ago, to house the extensive collection of Hawai'ian artifacts and royal family heirlooms of the princess (that's pretty impressive already!), but expanded to house the millions of artifacts and national treasures that celebrate and preserve Hawai'ian culture, as well as heritage from other Pacific islands.
Looks like you're going to have a busy day of exploration, discovery and learning!
Each item in the museum's collection has its own special story to tell. In fact, there are 24 million stories to tell, that all trace the history and cultures of the peoples of Hawai'i and Pacific, and help us to understand the unique island universe
In addition to the permanent collections, they host traveling exhibits from all around the world, so you can always experience new spectacular objects, learn even more fascinating stories, and discover new ideas on a whole host of topics!
The three floors of Hawaiian Hall take you on a journey through the different realms of the state. Learn all about Hawaiian gods, legends, and beliefs, and the amazing world of pre-contact Hawaii.
There is a floor dedicated to where people live and work, with a focus on the importance of land and nature in early life, and you also get to learn about key moments in Hawaii's history.
The Picture Gallery is filled with incredible examples of 19th century Hawaiian art, historic oil paintings, rare books and collectibles, or check out portraits of the Hawaiian Monarchy!
With a planetarium AND a Hawaiian garden to explore too, there is a whole day (even more) of discovery waiting for the family, where you will see Hawaii in a whole new and fascinating light!
