Founded in 1889, the Bishop Museum is world-renowned for collections that document the cultural and natural history of Hawai‘i and Polynesia more broadly. In the past, NEH funding to the museum has supported the development of an internship program and the creation of exhibitions that interpreted Hawai‘i’s history for the public.
