Please be advised due to capacity restrictions, our Planetarium is temporarily closed, and access to the Science Adventure Center is limited. We invite you to explore Hawaiian Hall, Pacific Hall, and our other exhibits, as well as take part in new, Outdoor Museum experiences.

The safety of our guests and employees continues to be our highest priority. New health and safety measures have been enacted to keep the Museum a safe place to visit and work. Please review these on our Health & Safety page. 

We recognize that the past few months have been challenging for our community. Our guests will be searching for safe, educational, and fun outdoor activities. To fill this need, we’re activating our 15-acre, ​park-like campus and Great Lawn to include new outdoor exhibits, programming, and activities for all ages while continuing to be conscious of everyone’s health and safety. The new “Outdoor Museum” experience will provide local families and individuals of all ages and backgrounds with opportunities to learn, play, and enjoy being in the outdoors.

Nā Mea Ola

From our reopening through the month of July, our new, outdoor programming will have the theme of “Nā Mea Ola,” or “Health and Wellness.” Guests are invited to participate in self-directed activities in Nā Ulu Kaiwiʿula, the Hawaiian Garden and other areas; learn about the healing properties of plants on our Great Lawn; attend socially distanced presentations on food and its effects on our physical and mental well-being; and, have their keiki take home a small growing kit via our “Grow and Go” activity.​
