About these ratings

In 2011, the Honolulu Academy of Arts joined forces with the Contemporary Museum to create the Honolulu Museum of Art. Together, the two establishments house an art collection that spans across seas, styles, and centuries. For the price of entry at one museum, you can also explore the other within the same day. (But note: they're about 2 miles away from each other.)

Along with pieces by Europe's great painters (Picasso, Gauguin, and van Gogh, to name a few), the Honolulu Museum of Art's main campus showcases one of America's best Asian art collections. For a truly unique experience, check out the Arts of Hawaii collection, where you can view Georgia O'Keeffe's Maui landscapes and indigenous feather capes. The building is a work of art in itself, with arched doorways leading to graceful courtyards. The Spalding House (formerly the Contemporary Museum) is smaller than the main campus, but still worth a visit if you care for Andy Warhol paintings, Deborah Butterfield sculptures, and William Wegman photographs.

You'll find the Honolulu Museum of Art's main campus in downtown Honolulu. From the main campus, you can reach the Spalding House via the No. 15 bus. The museum welcomes visitors Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and on Sunday afternoons. Note, however, that the Spalding House does not feature the same hours: The Spalding House welcomes visitors Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Tickets cost $10 for adults; the price includes entrance to both The Honolulu Museum of Art and the Spalding House. Visit the museum's official website for more information.
