AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Academy of Arts was founded in 1927 by local, Anna Rice Cooke, who spent her life collecting art with her husband, Charles Montague Cooke. She donated 4,000 pieces to establish the museum’s collection, which today spans more than 50,000 works and encompasses both eastern and western art. Start with the impressive display of Buddhist relics and then wind your way through the galleries that are dedicated to art from throughout the Pacific Islands. Before you leave, visit the wing devoted to Renaissance paintings. For those landlubbing travelers, the Academy of Arts is one of the best things to do in Honolulu to experience island culture and beauty in a serene setting. This museum itself is as beautiful as the art. Its floor plan includes courtyards, gardens, and fountains that allow visitors to weave in and out between art and nature.
