  • Rare Hawaiian-style art is the place to meet in one place. He was also special as scarcity.

  • Courtyard Center and Café guests can enjoy the hotel is art and art from around the world and see over time slowly but was able to spend time relaxing!

  • Great smaller sized museum. I love how it's part outdoors because you can actually do that in Hawaii. There's a room with a Gauguin and Monet and etc. to appreciate as well.
  • It has many artifacts, variety of art types, much information and is very open. I found some of the art beautiful, some intricate art in which the artist's seemed to have a sense of humour, and other that was elegant. The first time in can be a bit of a maze to get through. We did not make it through the whole building in 2 hours, which was only problematic because we had to keep running out to feed the meter. We did enjoy running through at our own pace so that we could focus on each piece at our own pace. We will be back to see the rest☺
  • Absolutely beautiful, airy buildings and courtyards; interesting and eclectic Asian art collections; lovely tropical-themed ikebana tucked in various corners; friendly staff. Cafe is ridiculously pricey but the food is quite good. A peaceful, rejuvenating way to spend a day in Honolulu, far from the crowds. One of the nicest spots in the islands, in my view.
  • A great window for the Polynesian culture. Best in door activity on the island so if it's raining you probably want to go there
  • I like the venue more than the art. There are beautiful little gardens representing different cultures. The store is interesting, though pricey (normal for a museum store). Some of their most exquisite art is on tour. I do enjoy they Middle Eastern display which contradicts some common stereotypes of Middle Eastern at including that figures are not depicted in Muslim art.
