  • This place is awesome for the most part. I thought it was entirely a natural history/science museum, but the main hall seemed to focus on Hawaiian culture for the most part. The loss of one star is for my own personal tastes not being met. If you want to see Hawaiian history with some natural history this place will be a five star for you.

  • Historical artifact collection providing wonderful educational opportunities. Can not overstate the professionalism and passion provided by the docents. Our guide highlighted snippets of the museum making the mammoth quantity of information bite-size, digestible, and incredibly delicious. Well worth the trip from Waikiki and wouldn't think twice about the admission fee. This can easily be a full day but should be granted at least a half day to give it justice. Don't miss The Bishop Museum when you're visiting Oahu.

  • Loved this experience! My three year old had a hard time during the movie so decide if that’s a necessary part. He loved the history of lava and seeing how it forms. Incredibly hands on. You pay for parking at the meter in front so grab your license plate number or you have to run back to it. Picture perfect scenery too.

  • Great place, so very interesting, Hawaiian history and artifacts. And in beautiful old building! Separate science building had an in-person display of pouring hot lava at 2000? degrees with explanations of how the lava behaves. Use the #2 bus from Waikiki.

  • This is a fascinating museum and one can quickly lose track of time. I thoroughly enjoyed the permanent collection of Hawaiian history and artifacts. The special exhibit on the Easter Islands was so-so and wish I would have spent more time in main part of the museum. I would highly recommend a free guided tour as the docents are very knowledgeable, friendly, and take their time to answer all questions. I did not spend time at the science building as it has become mainly a source of play for young kids. There is also a planetarium and I have enjoyed shows there in the past. The price of admission is quite high: $25.00. This is a good museum but a bit overpriced. One also has to pay for parking ($5). One may want to buy a family membership pass if they are a large group. I certainly like to support arts, culture, and history but this is quite an investment.
