You can start your culture safari at any of the three venues.
You will receive a two-day pass when you pay admission.
The pass allows unlimited entry to all three locations during the two days leading up to Memorial Day.

What you'll find

Funded by a grant from the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority, Two Museums and a Royal Palace was created by Bishop Museum president Blair Collis, Honolulu Museum of Art director Stephan Jost, and ‘Iolani Palace executive director Kippen de Alba Chu to broaden the local experience for visitors to the islands and to perpetuate the indigenous host culture.
