Ho‘oulu Hawai‘i: The King Kalākaua Era

Date/Time

Sep 15, 2018 to Jan 27, 2019
10:00 AM until 04:30 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Description

Never-before-displayed pieces from five of Honolulu's museums were gathered for this special exhibit celebrating the era of Hawai‘i during the reign of King Kalākaua. The monarch embraced emerging technologies and design—and the strategic use of art as he purposely created and promoted the nation's identity to the world. Ho‘oulu Hawai‘i: The King Kalākaua Era is an exploration of how a forward-looking nation created a cosmopolitan identity that took its place on the world stage.

Sections within the exhibition will include but are not limited to travel and technology through Kalākaua’s scrapbooks, photography, and early Kingdom telephones; hula, music, and fashion through period ʻukulele, and textiles; and international diplomacy through government-commissioned garments and paintings, royal orders, and diplomatic gifts. 

Admission will be waived on the following days:

  • Saturday, Sept. 15 and Sunday, Sept. 16 to celebrate the opening of the exhibit.
  • The first Wednesday of every month through January 2019. 
  • Friday, Nov. 16 and Sunday, Nov. 18
  • Wednesday, Nov. 28

Cost

Museum admission: kama‘āina, $10; $20 general; free for 18 and younger.
