Spotlight Tours

These 30-minute docent-led tours throw the spotlight on a specific aspect of the Honolulu Museum of Art's collection. Tour theme changes weekly—learn about Rococo art one week and Chinese ceramics another. Visit often to learn about the art.

Spotlight Tours are held Tuesdays through Saturdays at 1:30pm. Free with museum admission. No reservations required—just drop-in. Meet inside museum entrance.

Please call 532-8701 to confirm that there is a volunteer docent available if you are making a special trip.
