Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum

Exhibits at Bishop Museum

For more than 125 years we have brought Hawai‘i to the world and the world to Hawai‘i. Bishop Museum was established in 1889 to preserve and share the natural and cultural history of Hawai‘i and the Pacific. Today, Bishop Museum houses and cares for over 24 million historical, cultural, and natural treasures.

Each item in the collection has its own, special story to tell. These 24 million stories trace the history and cultures of the peoples of Hawai‘i and the Pacific, and help us to understand our unique island universe. 

We also host traveling exhibitions from around the world to allow our local audience to see spectacular objects, learn fascinating stories, and explore new ideas on a wide variety of topics.
