Bishop Museum

A $19.95 value - Included with your Go Oahu Card!

Spending a few hours in Hawaii's largest museum is one of the best ways to really get to know America's 50th state. Highlights include exhibits on Polynesian culture, 22 million specimens of animal and plant life and an "active" volcano display.

Discover the natural and cultural history of Hawaii at the Bishop Museum. The museum was founded in 1898 as a place to display the family heirlooms of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last descendant of the royal Kamehameha family. Today the museum is the premier cultural and natural history museums in the Pacific, with an ever-changing schedule of exhibitions and daily interactive programs.

Explore Hawaiian Hall, renovated in 2009, where the three floors correspond to the physical and spiritual realms of the Hawaiian people: Kai Äkea, the wide expanse of the sea; Wao Känaka, the realm of man; and Wao Lani, the heavenly realm. Through songs, chants, and mo'olelo stories, you'll discover the voices of Hawaiians, past and present.

Comments about Smart Destinations Bishop Museum:

Bishop Museum has done some great remodeling. It has been years since I have been through the Hawaiian Hall but it is really worth seeing. The feather cloaks and headdresses are amazing and in perfect shape. The history before civilization came in and then then changes after they did were so interesting. A real must for History buffs
