Some More on the Honolulu Museum of Art

THE MODERN HONOLULU is one of the few hotels in Honolulu to provide guests with complimentary access to top attractions and events. Guests of the hotel receive complimentary admission to the Honolulu Museum of Art. Just present your key card upon entry to the museum, then immerse yourself in one of Oahu’s most surprising destinations. Please contact our Guest Experience team for more information. (Purchased tickets to ARTafterDARK events are required.)

Known to art lovers as the finest small museum in the United States, the Honolulu Museum of Art is actually three museums in one. In addition to the main location, the museum also features Spalding House in Makiki Heights, which boasts a stunning collection of contemporary art along with spectacular views of Honolulu, and the outstanding Islamic Art Collection (book ahead to visit) housed in the waterfront Shangri La estate of the late heiress and curator Doris Duke.

Located just 2.5 miles from THE MODERN HONOLULU, the main museum’s galleries are filled with master works ranging from Japanese woodblock prints and Andy Warhol works to Pan-Pacific artifacts and world-famous post-Impressionist oils, including Monet’s “Water Lilies.” The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday.
