Bishop Museum Celebrating a Birthday

KALIHI (KHNL) -- Bishop Museum is also celebrating a birthday and you're all invited!

Dozens of people showed up Friday at Bishop Museum to benefit from a new policy: waiving admission fees on the birthdays of the founder, Charles Reed Bishop, as well as his wife, Bernice Pauahi Bishop.

January 25 is Charles' birthday.

"We consider Bishop Museum to be the museum of the people of Hawaii so this is the place we hold the culture, science, and important treasures of Hawaii and the Pacific," said Amy Miller with the Bishop Museum.

Bishop Museum isn't the only place Charles Reed Bishop founded.

He also started up the Hawai'i Maritime Center, so the free admission day applies there too.
