New Waikiki exhibit showcases Hawaii’s tourism history

Local News

Hawaii’s beauty is renowned throughout the world, and a new exhibit time-travels back to when tourism was just developing.

“The Travel to Hawaii Ads Exhibit” opened to the public in the Coronet Lounge of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

It features a variety of photos from the archives of the Matson Navigation Company.

The travel ads, from 1935 to 1941, are considered a portal to the past.

“I think a lot of people love vintage, and they love travel,” said Lynn Blocker Krantz, archive manager with Matson. “It’s interesting how people traveled and what got people to the Royal Hawaiian.”

The exhibit will be up through April of next year.
