Visited Museum as part of trip to Doris Duke House. Well set-up with excellent rooms....the James Michener Japanese Wood Block prints a highlight. As was lunch, the fish sandwich outstanding

These sections were the highlight. The museum itself appears to be undergoing a bit of maintenance so looks less than its best. Admission was $20US which we thought was expensive since many Australian art galleries are much better value for money. Get the number 2...More

What's the estimated time to complete this museum? I have a downtime between two activities with my husband and I would really like to stop by. Is it a small venue?

This museum is not small about 15 collection rooms and courtyards. There are always exhibishion as well. But depending on your schedule, 1 hour or 2 hours will be walking through all collection rooms.
It's unclear where I should park. Also, I want to stay for ArtafterDark and wonder if I have to move my car or can I keep it parked from early afternoon up until 9:00 pm?

I concur with the other two respondents, but would also add that there is paid parking at the Blaisdell Center across Thomas Square and metered parking adjacent to the museum and Linekona Center.

I was going to visit this museum for a couple hours right after I land in Honolulu, before I can check in at my hotel. Will I be able to check in a rather large travel luggage at the museum? Will it be safe?

There's an office just behind the admissions desk where people leave packs and suitcases. The staff is very helpful.
