PLEASE NOTE: Bishop Museum postponed the opening of the silent auction in order to focus on our support of the Maui community. The auction opened at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23 and will now close at 9:00 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 4.
E Ulu A Pa‘a highlights the stories, people, and partners that contribute to our continued growth (ulu) and make it possible for the Museum to build a solid foundation (paʻa), as we continue to pursue our mission and serve our local and global community.
Bishop Museum was founded in 1889 by Charles Reed Bishop in honor 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.
Today, Bishop Museum is the largest museum in the state and the premier natural and cultural history institution in the Pacific, recognized throughout the world for its cultural collections, research projects, consulting services and public educational programs. It also has one of the largest natural history specimen collections in the world. Serving and representing the interests of Native Hawaiians is a primary purpose of the Museum.
Mission: Bishop Museum inspires our community and visitors through the exploration, celebration, and perpetuation of the extraordinary history, culture, and environment of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.
