About Two Museums and a Royal Palace
Funded by a grant from the Hawaii Tourism Authority, Two Museums and a Royal Palace was created by Bishop Museum president Blair Collis, Honolulu Museum of Art director Stephan Jost, and Iolani Palace executive director Kippen de Alba Chu to broaden the local experience for visitors to the islands and to perpetuate the indigenous host culture.
** The Bishop Museum was founded in 1889 by Charles Reed Bishop in memory of his wife Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last direct descendant of King Kamehameha I. Today, the Museum is recognized as the principal museum of the Pacific, housing the world’s largest collection of Hawaiian and Pacific artifacts and natural history specimens. More than 350,000 people visit the Museum each year, including over 40,000 schoolchildren. For more information, please call (808) 847-3511 or visit www.bishopmuseum.org.
