Bishop Museum Introductory Experience 2017-07-14T05:30:50+00:00

This is a great option for those looking for a quick introduction to the museum and its collection.

However, if you would like to have a guided tour or program in the Hawaiian Hall Complex, the Science Adventure Center, travelling exhibit and/or our planetarium, please select our Introductory Experience PLUS option.

Program Type 1: Hawaiian Hall Complex Self-Guided Group Time

In this brief 30 minute segment you will be able to choose where you take your class, whether it be Hawaiian Hall, Pacific Hall, the Picture Gallery, Long Gallery or the Kāhili Room. We suggest staying in one area to be able to explore every corner in your 30 minutes here in the Hawaiian Hall Complex. This option is great for teachers with very specific objects or spaces within the Hawaiian Hall Complex.

In this longer 60 minute segment you will be able to choose where you take your class, whether it be Hawaiian Hall, Pacific Hall, the Picture Gallery, Long Gallery or the Kāhili Room. 60 minutes gives your more time to explore different spaces within the Hawaiian Hall Complex. We suggest choosing this option if you want your class to have a more wide-ranging introduction to the Hall.

Explore the different exhibit spaces within the Hawaiian Hall Complex with your class. During this time you will guide your class through Hawaiian Hall, Pacific Hall, the Picture Gallery, Long Gallery and the Kāhili Room. This allows you to tailor your walk through the halls to whatever your class is interested in learning about. Check out the options for how long your class can explore the halls on this self-guided group time.

Program Type 2: Science Adventure Center Self-Guided Group Time

In this 30 minute time period your class will be able to travel from the depths of the Twilight Zone to the skies above the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. New exhibits, including a surf-simulator and a Forest Birds of Hawaii display and game will be ready for your class to enjoy by Fall 2017. This option is great for teachers who wish to introduce their students to the natural history and science of Hawai‘i.

Experience the natural sciences of Hawaii throughout the unique 3 floors of interactive space in the Science Adventure Center. When you select Science Adventure Center Self-Guided Group Time your class will have 30 minutes to explore natural history of Hawaii with our 2 story volcano as the centerpiece to your Science Adventure Center visit.
