Starting in June, Bishop Museum is presenting a lineup of historical exhibitions that will excite, educate, and entertain the entire family!  These exhibits will be on display for several months and you can spend as much time as you want but, be sure to set aside (at least) a couple of hours to wander through, absorb, respect and remember.

E Ku Ana Ka Paia:  Unification, Responsibility, and the Ku Images

Now – October 4th, Hawaiian Hall and J.M. Long Gallery

Bishop Museum, the British Museum, and the Peabody Essex Museum are partnering to bring together the three largest Ku images in the world for a historic exhibition this summer.  It will be the first time in over 160 years that three traditional Ku images of this size and magnitude will be displayed alongside one another.


June 19th – September 6th, Castle Memorial Building

This exhibition provides a glimpse into the fascinating pasts of surfing, one of Hawaii’s gifts to the world.  The exhibit will feature archival images from Bishop Museum Archives along with historic surfboards from the Museum’s renowned collection of artifacts. Trace the historical transformation of surfing’s image through the centuries, from Polynesian myths of love to an account of an exotic “amusement” that presented nothing but “horror & destruction,” as well as recollections of surfing as a character-building activity and sometimes the test of one’s romantic interest.

Still Present Pasts:  Korean Americans and the “Forgotten War”

June 26th – September 12th, Castle Memorial Building

This is a multi-media exhibit of installation and performance art, documentary film and archival photographs, and oral histories that explores memories and legacies of the Korean War.  Embodying life stories of ordinary Korean Americans who experienced the war, the exhibit is a public space of remembering that breaks the silence about a tragic episode in U.S. and Korean history.


Open Wednesday to Monday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Museum is closed on Tuesdays and Christmas Day (December 25).

There is ample free parking on our campus.
