Our venues

Museum Café & Coffee Bar

For over 50 years, the HoMA Café serves fresh, casual cuisine in a relaxing, open-air setting. Open for lunch Tuesday through Saturday, and for brunch on Sunday, the café operates with sustainability in mind, and is a designated ocean-friendly restaurant.

Museum Gift Shop

The HoMA Shop offers a wide selection of publications, stationery, jewelry, textiles, handcrafted works, art prints and posters, and creative supplies, which reflect the local, national and international scope of the museum’s collection. All proceeds from purchases directly support programs and exhibitions at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Shangri La tour program

Built in 1937 as the Honolulu home of American heiress and philanthropist Doris Duke, Shangri La was inspired by her extensive travels throughout North Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia. It opened as a museum in 2002, and can be experienced through guided small group tours. In partnership with the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, HoMA serves as the orientation center and starting point for Shangri La tours.
