The Bishop Museum provides an interesting and educational introduction to native Hawaiian and other Polynesian societies. See www.bishopmuseum.org for more information. We were able to get there by taking the #2 bus from Waikiki and riding for about 45 minutes before being set down about a block and a half away -- the bus driver provided directions. In addition to a museum containing the royal emblems, large feather dusters signifying their status, it also had masks, jewelry, clothing, hooks, jewelry, pottery and the like -- all examples first quality in workmanship. They also have a very well narrated planetarium and offer showings of authentic hula chants, dances and music. There's a gift shop on site and its air conditioned inside. It took about 2.5 hours to see most sites at our leisure.
