What is ARTafterDARK?
Launched in 2004, ARTafterDARK is the Honolulu Museum of Art's monthly art party organized by a dynamic group of young volunteers dedicated to exploring the arts. ARTafterDARK is held on the last Friday of the month, January through October, from 6 to 9pm on the grounds of the Honolulu Museum Art. About 250 attended the first ARTafterDARK. Now about 2,000 people flock to the museum for the event each month.
Is there an admission fee for ARTafterDARK events?
Admission is free for museum members and $25 for non-members.
Admission for children age 12 and under is free, but they must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older who assumes full responsibility for their supervision, care, and safety.
Upon arriving at the front gate of the museum, you will see two separate lines. The line on the left is for museum members. Present a photo ID upon check-in to be admitted.
The line on the right is for general admission. You may use cash or credit card to pay for your admission fee. We do not pre-sell admission for ARTafterDARK.

Yeah, we’ve got a few rules too:
• No large bags are allowed into the museum due to security reasons. If security deems your bag too large, they will require you to house your bag in a locker while at the event. Leave the duffels at home!
• ARTafterDARK’s maximum capacity is 2,000 guests. As the party approaches this volume, entry at the doors will be slowed if not shut off all together. We will let more guests in as other guests leave. Moral of the story—get here early!
