In the exclusive Makiki Heights neighborhood, just minutes from downtown Honolulu, the Spalding House features collections of modern art dating from 1940. Situated in the 3.5-acre Alice Cooke Spalding home and estate (built in 1925), the museum boasts ever-changing exhibitions as well as a peaceful sculpture garden with breathtaking views of Diamond Head and Waikiki. A fun gift shop features jewelry and other art by local artists. Previously known as the Contemporary Museum, Spalding House became part of the Honolulu Museum of Art organization, so a single admission gets you into both museums. www.honolulumuseum.org. COST: $10. OPEN: Tues.--Sat. 10--4, Sun. noon--4.
