Hawaii State Art Museum Parking and Access (January 17, 2018)

Posted on Jan 17, 2018 in Blog Post, Hawaii State Art Museum

Planning to visit the museum today? Please note that this is the opening day for the Hawaiʻi State Legislature, and there will be activities in the area commemorating the 125th anniversary of the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom, and parking will be tighter than usual in the downtown area. It’s a good day to take public transportation, walk, or bike if you can! Several TheBus routes stop directly in front of or close to our building (250 South Hotel St., No.1 Capitol District Building), the Waikiki Trolley stops at the Hawaiʻi State Capitol Building (across the street from us), and there are Biki bike racks at the Capitol Building and on South Hotel St. in front of our building.

Building renovation activities have also closed the front entrance to our building. At this time, the Richards St. entrance gate to the wheelchair/stroller ramp is the primary entry point. The front entrance is scheduled to be closed through the end of January. Renovation activities have also resulted in the temporary removal of some artworks from museum exhibits. If you would like to check ahead to see which entry will be available, and any changes to current exhibits, please call the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts at (808) 586-0300.

There is no parking available at the museum. For more information, including about accessible parking, please see the Visitor Information page.
