Renovation Progress Amid Second Shutdown

Bowfin Park

Despite the second mandated shutdown on Oahu, we have continued to execute our renovation project. We are happy to inform you that the construction phase of our renovation is complete -- we are now focusing efforts on exhibit installation.

Pacific Studio, our exhibit installer arrived on island and has hit the ground running. With the initial two containers delivered and four more anticipated in the next two weeks, Pacific Studio expects to complete the exhibit installation before the end of the year. The museum’s audio-visual (A-V) systems will be installed sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The A-V system will be tested and content will be loaded in early January 2021.

We are currently on track for a soft opening of our museum in mid to late January and a grand reopening in February – March. We will keep you updated as we progress through the installation process so stay tuned!
