‘Iolani Palace, the official residence of Hawaii’s monarchy, is a marvel of opulence, innovation and political intrigue that tells of a time when their Majesties, King Kalakaua and his sister and successor, Queen Liliuokalani, walked its celebrated halls.
Today, you can enjoy one of the most spectacular living restorations in all of Polynesia and immerse yourself in Hawaii’s royal heritage. Officially dedicated in 1882, ‘Iolani Palace served as the setting for the monarchs and their courts on formal occasions.
The palace hosts events, offers facility rentals, and has a gift shop. Landscaped grounds are popular for informal lawn picnics and Friday noon band concerts. ‘Iolani Palace is a National Historic Landmark.
The Palace is Administered by the Division of State Parks, but is managed by the Friends of ‘Iolani Palace under a long term lease. For more information, please contact the Friends of ‘Iolani Palace:
Guided tours of the palace interior are available by advance reservations (fee charged) – call the Friends of ʻIolani Palace at (808) 522-0832; tour hours are 9 am to 2:15 pm from Wednesday through Saturday.
