Looking for new experiences at Bishop Museum? Can’t make it during the day? We’ve got you covered! Bishop Museum will be opening its 15-acre campus once a month, for the evening!
Kamaʻāina and visitors can explore Hawaiʻi’s unique and unparalleled cultural and natural history during Bishop Museum After Hours. See Kalaniʻōpuʻu’s feather ʻahu ʻula (cape) and mahiole (helmet) in Hawaiian Hall; check out Hawaiʻi’s animal and plant biodiversity in the Science Adventure Center; explore new exhibitions in the Castle Memorial Building. Spend your evening under Honolulu’s star-lit sky on the Great Lawn with a meal from a local food truck and music. Bishop Museum has a safe and socially distanced, family-friendly experience for everyone.
Once a timed admission is booked, please arrive anytime during your check-in hour. Arriving after your booked hour check-in window by more than 15 minutes may require entry on a space-available basis. Once checked in, all admissions are welcome to stay until 8 p.m.

(Re)Generations: Challenging Scientific Racism in Hawaiʻi
February 20 – October 24, 2021
J. M. Long Gallery
Explore a collection of photographs and plaster busts created by anthropologist Louis R. Sullivan as a tool to measure and classify the physical traits of a supposedly “pure” Native Hawaiian race. Despite its problematic racist origins, the Sullivan Collection has taken on new life as one of the Museum’s primary sources for genealogical research, and as a vehicle for rediscovering ancestors and genealogical connections.
