TravelExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This is Hawaii's premier museum--indeed, it is world class--founded in 1889 and named for the last descendent of the Kamehameha royal family. It houses artifacts and exhibits related to Hawaiian and all Polynesian people.
  • Permanent exhibits include the Polynesian Hall; Science Adventure Center with interactive exhibits about Hawaii's environment, such as volcanology and oceanography; and the Hawaiian Hall with treasures of Hawaiian culture, which is currently undergoing renovation and will re-open in mid-2009.
  • The museum is close to the Honolulu airport, so if you have a night flight, this is a great stop before heading to the airport--but check on the hours the museum is open. If you're looking for works by Hawaii's top artists, shop online at the store at
