A Nightmare on Beretania Street

After a certain age, trick or treating gets old. And after a while so does going to Waikiki on Halloween night. 

This year the Honolulu Museum of Art’s monthly event ART after Dark, is held on the last Friday of every month, happens to land on Halloween night. The event’s theme will be ‘A Nightmare on Beretania Street’ –a nod to the Freddy Kruger classic, ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’.

The museum will have its’ first floor galleries open, while the two main courtyards will have music, entertainment, a haunted house, and themed food and drinks.

The museum will have the only haunted house downtown.


Honolulu Museum of Art’s event coordinator Wainani Paikai, says that “we are having a haunted house which we have never had before, Nightmares Live, the same people who do the Dole plantation haunted house are making a mini haunted house for us.“

The theme for the haunted house will be ‘serial killers’ and groups of four will be able to go through the five-minute mini-maze.


Last year’s Halloween themed ART at Dark had a turnout of about 2,400 people, this year the turnout is expected to be greater.

“Halloween is normally our craziest event… It is just a huge party; I mean at this point, because everyone comes it will be fun,” said Wainani.

The cost to get into The Honolulu Museum of Art will be $10 for non-members or free for members, you will be able to find parking on Beretania and Kinau Street. ‘A Nightmare on Beretania Street’ will be from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., so if you still wanted to check out some Halloween events in Waikiki after, you could.
