The museum's second location, Spalding House, features galleries of art, a permanent installation of David Hockney's L'Enfant et les sortilèges, a café, pop-up gift shop, and sculpture-filled gardens overlooking Diamond Head and Honolulu.
Spalding House was formerly The Contemporary Museum, and in July 2011, it gifted its collection and assets to the Honolulu Academy of Arts, merging the two museums. Now a single admission gets you into both remarkable places—collectively known as the Honolulu Museum of Art—where you can be transformed.
