Education is the Honolulu Museum of Art's mission. The museum works closely with teachers and schools to make art part of the lives of students. Our goal is to help you make the most of your visit to the Museum.
In conjunction with the openings of our special exhibitions, the Museum Learning Center hosts free teacher workshops for all Hawai‘i educators. Workshops include a tour of the exhibition, lectures about the artwork, and an opportunity to share teacher resources and best practices.

We have digitized many of our most important works for you to use to prepare your students for your tour, show your students the diversity and value of art in Hawai‘i, and develop classroom lesson and student projects.

Curriculum guides supplement the school tours by providing K-12 teachers with suggested lessons and activities that address HCPS III benchmarks in a variety of subjects. The guides also include tour images.
