Honolulu Academy of Arts

If you’re in an artsy mood while in Hawaii, the Honolulu Academy of Arts is the place to visit. The Academy is over 80 years old, and has over 40,000 works of art from around the world. The Academy has been accredited by the American Association of Museums.

One of the really cool things about the Academy is the Antennae Audio Guide. For only $5, you can listen to the electronic guide discuss 40 different pieces of art from the Academy. If you want to take a guided tour, that isn’t a problem. There are four different tour times, Tuesday through Saturday. If you’re Japanese, do not worry. You can get a Japanese tour Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday at 1:00.

The building is also beautiful. In fact, it was once voted as Hawaii’s best building by the American Institute of Architecture. It is also very close to the Waikiki resort area if your hotel is located in the area. In addition, you can grab a quick meal in the Pavilion Cafe as well.

The Honolulu Academy of Arts is such a great attraction for tourists, you could spend an entire day there! Make sure to visit this wondrous place on your next visit to Hawaii.
