When was the last time you visited the Honolulu Museum of Art? I’ll admit, it’s been a while since I last walked through the halls of Oahu’s premier art museum. We decided to swing by for the Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday “Blueprint” event and while there, decided to enjoy Sunday brunch at the HoMA Cafe.
Looking for a piece of aviation (and World War II) history during your visit to Hawaii? If so, then the Pacific Aviation Museum is a must visit. Located on Ford Island in the middle of historic Pearl Harbor, the Pacific Aviation Museum is home to a fine collection of aircrafts, including a P-40 fighter and a civilian plane that was airborne and shot during the attack, and a MiG-15 and F-86 Sabre aircraft which flew during the Korean War.
A little over a year ago, I had the opportunity to visit the The National September 11 Memorial & Museum. The memorial occupies eight acres at One World Trade Center. Every name of every person who died on that day is inscribed on the bronze that surrounds the twin memorial pools. It’s a somber place. I recall it being very quiet. Many visitors, if not all, were in quiet reflection.
