Aww SNAP. This place is articulated. Great people there working. Intelligence is everywhere. Love is happiness. Happiness is Art. Food is amazing. Life is blessing.
Great free museum. Very well laid out.
It's quite nice, if you're into the type of modern art that they have there. Some of the pieces are just really, really weird, some are interesting, and some are really nice.
For a city the size of Honolulu, great& perfectly sized museum with some amazing exhibits. Should definitely be on your list of must See's while on the island. Aloha!
I really enjoyed this museum. It's currently (May 2018) under construction, but the second floor gallery is still open to the public and contains numerous works of art by local artists. When I went, there was an exhibition by local elementary students that was fantastic as well. Will definitely be returning to see new works and look forward to the construction finishing up. Fantastic, FREE museum that is easily navigable.
