    Michelin’s recommendations: 3 * ” The sprawling Museum of Natural and Cultural History is the state’s largest; its collection of Hawaiian and Pacific artifacts is regarded as one of the best in the world. The museum, founded in 1889 by Charles Reed Bishop in honor of his late wife, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last descendant of the royal Kamehameha family, was meant to house the extensive collection of Hawaiian artifacts and royal-family heirlooms of the Princess. Today it boasts more than 187,000 artifacts, documents and photographs relating to Hawaii and other Pacific island cultures”

    Terrible. Coming from a place like Washington DC, this place was mediocre at best. Take your kid to a Lego store, there is just as much to experience there and you can use the money on something just for them. To top the visit off, as we were in an exhibit next to the planetarium, were were invited with our 5 year old and 2 year old to view the planetarium show (were even told were the stroller parking was in the planetarium) and was then rudely approached 20 minutes into the show to leave because children weren’t welcomed. This was because the 2 year old was saying, “wow, ooohh” with the effects of the show. Apparently this was not ok from one individual who works there on weekends only and took it upon himself to demand that we remove the 2 year old because “we can’t have all of this chatter and that this is an adult only show.” If that was the case, then why have stroller parking or let us in to begin with? Would have had no issues if we weren’t invited into the show in the first place, or told from the get go that it was not ok – or if there had been some type of statement when paying for tickets. Which, I would argue is a significant amount for a mediocre museum that children are not allowed to experience the prime exhibit of the museum. Surely the excitement (not wailing or crying) of a toddler can’t overpower their speaker system in there – I know we didn’t have any trouble hearing. Clearly the case of an individual not happy with children and chose to create his own policy in the middle of the event. Definitely not worth the price of admission. Thankfully, they at least refunded our money, but with all of the other amazing things to see in Hawaii, I would never waste time or money on this one again…

    The Smithsonian of the pacific. A great place to see artifacts and learn about the Hawaiian culture and history. Good planetarium, and hands on discovery museum. A must visit place in Hawaii.
