Bishop Museum, Honolulu Photos

The Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum (1889) (aka the Hawai'i State Museum of Natural and Cultural History). The gem of the museum is the Hawaiian history collection housed in a Richardsonian Romanesque-style building (1889) designed by William F. Smith. It also hosts an extensive Pacific Polynesian Wing. The Castle Memorial Building (1990) and The Richard T. Mamiya Science Adventure Center (2005) complete the campus which is landscaped with native plants.
