COVID-19 Update | May 20, 2020

We would like to thank you all for your patience, understanding, and support as the Museum continues to monitor and sort through the reality of changes due to COVID-19.

Summer 2020 Programming
Due to the State of Hawai‘i’s evolving guidance on safe practices and physical distancing, the Honolulu Museum of Art has made the difficult decision to cancel all Summer 2020 programming. We will be sending all students email updates as we slowly work towards reopening programming while ensuring everyone’s safety. We are all looking forward to welcoming all of you back to the Museum once we have reopened.

Personal Item Pick-ups
