Not worth the time or money.
Marilyn_H, May 2024
There really wasn’t anything memorable about this experience. Some of the exhibits were closed and the others weren’t very interesting.
Great for us... and future generations
Joseph_P, Apr 2024
Loved it all. Especially the feathered Kahili room, and the sweet story of stone Kaneikokokala now 'staying warm'. He seems very happy.
Must Visit
Rainia_N, Apr 2024
Enjoyed learning about Hawaiian culture as I didnt know much before traveling to the island. I look forward to returning and staying longer to explore.
Richard_S, Mar 2024
The rich history depicted in pictures and wonderful historical articles collected and preserved over the years.
Plan 1/2 day to get the full museum appreciation
Stephen_R, Feb 2024
Enjoyed all the exhibits and the grounds. We should have allowed more time on our travel plans for the Bishop Museum.

Displays were very informative, building was simply amazing. A real gem to visit on a iffy weather day.
Wonderful day
Mark_S, Jan 2024
Very educational and interesting. Loved seeing so much of Hawaiian history. Well worth your time to visit.
More than you expect
Kelly_J, Jan 2024
It was raining, so I needed to find a place indoors to enjoy. We spent two hours here, but could have spent more. It was more than I expected. The main building/museum was so ornate and well designed. Learning about Hawaiian and other native island groups was interesting and included so many artifacts.
A collection that is beyond expectations.
Jonathan_T, Jan 2024
Too much to absorb in one visit. The sheer magnitude of the structure itself is astounding. The collection includes one incredible piece after another.
Hawaiian Cultural!
Armelia_S, Nov 2023
Great Hawaiian Cultural. Very interesting. I like the fact that the museum campus has a number of building that focus on different subject matters. The Science building, the Planetarium building.
Learn about the cultures and histories of Hawaiian and other Pacific peoples
Miranda_M, Aug 2023
What an amazing find! We had recalcitrant weather one day, and looked for indoor things to do, and found this museum. A wonderful way to learn about modern efforts to revive traditional Hawaiian arts, learn about Hawaiian and Polynesian cultures, and experience other information. There wasn't enough time to do everything we wanted to do!
I love history and the...
Robert_W, Apr 2023
I love history and the experience of learning more about the Polynesian culture. I will definitely spread my experience to others
Bishop museum
Margie_R, Mar 2023
Went with my Hawaiian husband. Meant a lot more to me as i am widely read in Hawaiian history. Otherwise, i think it would be overwhelming with all the names, although I’m sure that a guided tour would make it interesting even to outsiders.
Hawaiiana at its best....
Rickey_R, Mar 2023
Hawaiiana at its best. Ancient thru mid 1900’s history well told. Being from here, a good reminder of history.
Really interesting lots...
JerrilynJ_A, Feb 2023
Really interesting lots of Hawaiian history really added to our trip worth the trip not the typical beach excursion and good place to support
Hawaiian culture and history
Kim_B, Feb 2023
There was so much to see and it was presented in an interesting and understandable way. I visited midweek and almost had the place to myself, so I was able to take my time.
Don’t miss it!!!
pepper_s, Dec 2022
loved the program on navigation by the stars / the woman who gave it was terrific! The whole museum is one extraordinary educational experience
A new experience
rod4rocketmail, Nov 2022
I enjoyed learning about navigation of those sailors sailing the seas. It was informative. The museum itself focused on the history of Hawaii and how the monarchy reshaped Hawaii while preserving it’s culture.
So much history
Iris_O, Nov 2022
So much to see. So much history. Take the time to fully appreciate Pacific islanders' history, not only about the Hawaiians.
The feathered capes!...
Peter_V, Oct 2022
The feathered capes! Historical materials were well displayed and explained, throughout. Bill, a museum associate, was extremely helpful.
