Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum

Bishop Museum was founded in 1889 by Charles Reed Bishop in honour of his late wife, Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last descendant of the royal Kamehameha family. The Museum was established to house the extensive collection of Hawaiian objects and royal family heirlooms of the Princess, and has expanded to include millions of objects, documents and photographs about Hawai‘i and other Pacific island cultures.

Bishop Museum is the largest museum in the state and the premier natural and cultural history institution in the Pacific, recognised throughout the world for its cultural collections, research projects, consulting services and public educational programs. (Bishop Museum)
