Totally enjoyed this sister museum to the Honolulu Museum of Art as it is located high above the city offering incredible views over Honolulu and Diamond Head. The property is nicely landscaped with a sculpture garden and a tennis court reworked into an art space of sorts. The current exhibition concerning plastic was very interesting and offered some fun hands... 更多
The exhibitions were very interesting (from American Pop Art exhibitions to Polynesian Art and other cultures).The house is amazing with a GREAT garden to walk through. The Cafe is very good too. We ate there before follow to Honolulu Museum and there were great options for a fair price.
Stumbled across this museum while searching for an art-o-mat. It's lovely little spot. The exhibits were well curated and intriguing and the staff were beyond helpful. The place has such a lovely peaceful feel, we wanted to just sit all afternoon. Highly reccomend a visit.
I visited the Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House with my brother and father, who live nearby in Makiki. My brother works for Hawaiian Electric, a company that is a large supporter of arts and science education, and allowed us free admission to the Spalding House. The current exhibit focuses on the pros and cons of plastics, Plastic Fantastic?, with... 更多
We expected the Japanese gardens would be more Japanese themed but it was just a garden. A beautiful garden, but nothing special. They also had steep stairs and would be hard for older people to walk through. The museum itself was strange and not worth the price. We did eat at their restaurant and it was very good.
We went there twice already. The loxation of museum is great, garden and pool simply beautiful. Some exhibitions better than the others. We love the place si much that we choose to take few wedding shots there. I would recomend anyone to go there. For me is one of not many places in Honolulu you have to see.
The Spalding House is included in the fee to visit the Honolulu Museum of Art. We drove up after visiting the museum, only to find that the exhibits inside the house were closed for renovation. We strolled the grounds, which are peaceful and beautiful. You can walk a path down into a lush ravine. There is a separate building with... 更多
Granted I'm not what you'd call a big art aficionado, but I do especially enjoy contemporary art...we visited on the 1st Weds of the month when it's free (hubby doesn't enjoy art museums at all & stayed in the garden to read a book). The gardens are truly lovely & afford nice views of HNL...few people around meant quiet peaceful... 更多
The museum overlooks Honolulu and its beautiful gardens are almost worth the admission price in themselves. The current special exhibit, TXT/MSG, is a provocative, interactive exploration of what communication amounts to. A separate building houses David Hockney's re-imagining of his stage design for the opera "L'enfant et les Sortileges." It's like entering a painting.
