Museums in Honolulu 

Honolulu is the capital and largest city Hawaii, as well as being the most remote city of its size in the world. Honolulu means “sheltered harbour”. The city has been the capital of the Hawaiian Islands since 1845 and gained historical recognition after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Evidence of the first settlement of Honolulu by the original Polynesian migrants dates back to the 11th century.  In 1794, the British Navy was the first European ship to sail into what is now Honolulu Harbor. More foreign vessels followed, making the port of Honolulu a focal point for merchant ships travelling between North America and Asia.

Despite the turbulent history of the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893 and Hawaiʻi’s subsequent annexation by the United States in 1898,  Honolulu has flourished into a major modern city with diverse cultural institutions. Honolulu Museum’s that will be featured by the “Joy of Museums” include:
