HoMA Health and Safety Measures
The Honolulu Museum of Art is deeply committed to the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers. We appreciate your support in following these simple safety guidelines.
Masks are required
For everyone’s safety, please use face masks while indoors at the museum (including the front entrance, galleries, the Shop, and restrooms), with the exception of children under age 5 and those with conditions that affect breathing. Please see our detailed mask policy at the bottom of the page.
Enjoy the art, six feet apart
Please keep a minimum distance of six feet from anyone outside of your party at all times, and be mindful of the maximum occupancy for each gallery.
Gallery and program modifications
Museum capacity will be limited to ensure compliance with CDC guidelines. For the time being, all tours are on hold.
Wash and disinfect your hands
Please wash your hands regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds, and kindly make use of the disinfectant dispensers located throughout the museum. Common areas and high touch surfaces are sanitized regularly throughout the day.
If you have the choice, please pay for your tickets and other products by card. We strongly urge advance online purchase of timed admission tickets to facilitate a low touch entry to the museum. Holders of annual membership passes and children 18 and under are requested to book a gratis timed admission online and to present corresponding ID upon admission. Timed admission tickets can also be purchased on site subject to their availability. If you are unable to print your tickets at home, they may be scanned directly from your phone.
Outside food, beverages, backpacks, umbrellas, tripods, or bags exceeding 16 inches in diameter are not permitted in the museum. Onsite storage is not available for personal items.
We appreciate your kōkua
To ensure the safety of all visitors, staff, and volunteers, please adhere to all posted social distancing policies and staff or volunteer instruction. Failure to comply with any museum or Health and Safety policies may result in expulsion from museum property in the interest of visitor and staff safety.
HoMA mask policy
In accordance with State of Hawai‘i Emergency Order Proclamation 17, the Honolulu Museum of Art requires that all staff and visitors shall wear face coverings over their noses and mouths while indoors (front entrance, galleries, shop and restrooms) at the museum, with the exception of children under age 5 and individuals with medical conditions or disabilities where the wearing of a face covering may pose a health or safety risk to the individual.
Face coverings may be removed while outdoors on property and while seated and dining in designated dining areas at the Café, Palm Courtyard, and Central Courtyard. Masks are recommended if outdoor spaces contain crowds.
Masks and face shields are available free of charge at the Visitor Information Center. We appreciate your kōkua and ask that all visitors please adhere to HoMA’s posted COVID-19 safety policies and staff or volunteer instruction while on site.
