Hawaiian Museum Hosts Amelia Earhart Exhibit

A  year after the Royal Hawaiian hosted an exhibit of Amelia Earhart photos, the LA Times is reporting that the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor in Honolulu will present an exhibition of newly discovered photos of the renowned aviator's stay in Hawaii.

The "Amelia Earhart in Hawaii Photo Exhibit," which will be on permanent display at the museum, was created from negatives recently found in the archives of shipping giant Matson Navigation Co. The company, which transported Earhart's plane from L.A. to Hawaii in 1934 in preparation for her Hawaii-California solo flight, had commissioned a photo essay of the aviator's travels in Hawaii, museum curator Jim Goodall told the paper.

The exhibition includes eight large canvas prints made from large-format camera negatives and 20 photos presented as collages taken from 1934 to 1937.

Museum admission is $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 4 to 12.
