Honolulu Museum Of Art, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review
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.
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☺
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.
The Honolulu Museum of Art consistently has interesting and provocative art shows. They have new art showcases in intervals that seem like monthly to bi-monthly, and it always seems like there is something exciting going on every time I visit. If it's your first time they have volunteers that will give you a tour of the premises. The last Friday (or Saturday?) of every month they have an event called "Art After Dark", it's a major event on the island. There are multiple bartender stations to keep everyone adequately hydrated, and there is typically live music, and even live art shows. I've seen some really great art shows here at these events including live DJ's and even vocal artists singing original music. Overall the Museum is really well organized and consistently entertaining, imo. I think all the locals and visitors appreciate the service this organization provides the public and recommend visiting at least once. If you're a local the yearly pass is $30, and a one time pass is $25.
Art After Dark. It's gotten seriously popular! Now that I understand more about fine art I've come to realize that Hawaii has a some of the major arts assembled here. Gaugin, Renoir, Calder, on and on and on. One day I visited another museum on the continent and at the end of the featured exhibit I find out that it was on loan from the Honolulu Museum. Membership is very reasonable. Join and discover. Impress your friend how mature you've become...just kidding. You'll love it.
