The Robert Allerton Art Library, a non-circulating research facility, is an invaluable resource for members of the Honolulu Museum of Art, art collectors, art students, and anyone else with an interest in art. There is no museum admission charge for those only visiting the library.
With a collection of some 55,000 books and periodicals, extensive biographical files on artists of Hawai’i and elsewhere, and auction catalogues dating to the beginning of the 20th century, the library is the state’s premier source of art information.
Some areas of the library's special collections, such as the Richard Lane, Hiroko Ikeda, and Azabu Collections, are now searchable through the online catalog. These materials have restricted access, and permission is required for their use. For further information, please email email@example.com. The online library catalog has been made available with generous support from the Robert F. Lange Foundation.
