  • OMG. You will find more local "fine" art at the HSAM then any other gallery on the island. Both contemporary and retro. Admission is free! If you are not into art, spend some relaxing time here at the courtyard. What was once a pool is now a glass floor for you to walk on. And there are concrete seating for you too. Enjoy the local art.
  • This museum is incredible in every way possible, the people working there are adorable, the art displayed is amazing and the guides are so nice. It's surely one of the most beautiful museum I've ever seen. I went there in august. Merci beaucoup pour votre accueil chaleureux.
  • Well curated art museum that’s free to visit. The exhibits are small, but there’s a lot of interesting art by local artists that make HiSAM worth a visit. If you’re in Waikiki the museum is easily accessible by bus, and you can explore downtown and Chinatown afterwards.
  • quite refreshing to find worldclass art mixed in with native Hawaiian art along the walls at this fine establishment. this museum was better than a few art museums on the mainland even. highly recommended
  • Really cool place with a good amount of exhibits and a small shop

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
