Lunch Honolulu found here! When The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu became part of the Honolulu Museum of Art years ago, its new name changed to The Spalding House. This was good news for all to see the former Contemporary Museum continue and their famous picnic lunch. One admission fee covers both museums on the same day. You can also enter free when you use the Go Oahu Card. Read below and find two days each month when admission is waived.
Spalding House offers spectacular views of Honolulu and Diamond Head from the slopes of Mount Tantalus, exceptional art and beautiful gardens and lawns on a 3.5 acre estate. But it doesn’t stop there.
Enjoy a picnic lunch Honolulu from The Spalding House Cafe.
This costs $40 for two and includes complimentary mats to spread out on the lawn. Your basket is prepared with choice of sandwich or salad for each person, cookies, and beverages. Phone orders for picnics are recommended at 808-237-5225. Try it and we know you’ll love it! The lawns are expansive so you can find a quiet place to relax.
Put the Spalding House and picnic lunch on your list of things to do in Honolulu.
