Hawaii State Art Museum, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review

  • Well curated art museum that’s free to visit. The exhibits are small, but there’s a lot of interesting art by local artists that make HiSAM worth a visit. If you’re in Waikiki the museum is easily accessible by bus, and you can explore downtown and Chinatown afterwards.

  • quite refreshing to find worldclass art mixed in with native Hawaiian art along the walls at this fine establishment. this museum was better than a few art museums on the mainland even. highly recommended

  • The museum was interesting yet lacked a more updates touch.

  • Albeit smaller than many metropolitan art musems, there is no deny the turn-of-the-century ambiance to this public space. The place itself has a lot of history and had several uses before becoming a state museum. Although the main exhibits are more long-term than temporary, there are smaller niches within the 2nd floor wings that allow for temporary exhibits like the recent one I really wanted to see on kapa - "Ho'omau: The Perpetuation of Kapa." The is an interesting dining place inside on the first floor as well as a cultural and artsy gift shop. The museum offers monthly guest artist discussions/presentations that are open to the public and also hands-on workshops. GREAT for families! Every 2nd Saturday is family day where they have complimentary children's activities (games, workshops, arts and crafts, etc.) On the 2nd floor in the wing on the right (when facing the security desk) there is a cool kids play room with lots of tactile tinker/thinker toys and other creative pursuits available to kids like reading, building, drawing, etc. I love it!
