If you wish to find out about Hawaiian royalty, Hawaiian flora and fauna etc., go to the Bishop Museum. It houses an extensive collection of Hawaiian artifacts and royal family heirlooms. There heirlooms come from the founder of the museum, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop who was the last Hawaiian royal.

The museum has more meaning when you join the tours (included with the entrance fee). Arrive early enough in the day to be able to follow a few of the tours. It took us over 1/2 a day to see everything before we were museumed out.

Cost in 2004 for adults is still $15 each. We found a coupon in some magazine for $5 off the entrance fee.

Address: 1525 Bernice Street, Honolulu
Directions: To get there, we took The Bus (# 2) from Waikiki. It takes about 3/4 hr. The museum is in a residential area in northwestern Honolulu.
