Today’s destination is the incomparable Bishop Museum. Constructed in 1889, the Bishop Museum boasts an unprecedented collection of artifacts from the many islands in the Pacific. The museum offers something from each corner of the Polynesian Triangle including an extensive Maori collection from New Zealand, a replica of an Easter Island stone image, and, of course, the finest historical representation of the Hawaiian Islands. The museum escorts you through Hawaii’s history, from the early “pre-contact” days before Captain Cook’s arrival, to the evolutionary changes brought about by American and Far East cultures and missionaries.

If you love history and finding out about other cultures, you are in for a real treat—Hawaii’s days of old were certainly not all about warm summer breezes with beautiful women dancing the hula. They were filled with intrigue and fierce passion.

After a docent tour, there will be time to browse the museum gift shop prior to heading back to the Sheraton Waikiki.
